Jason Lester open-raised to 85,000 from the button, and Phil Hellmuth called from the big blind. The flop came {A-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Hellmuth pushed out of bet of 60,000, and Lester raised to 210,000. Hellmuth called. Both then checked the {K-Clubs} turn and {A-Clubs} river.

Hellmuth tabled {K-Spades}{6-Hearts} for kings and aces, and Lester mucked. Hellmuth pushes up to 1.96 million, while Lester has 735,000.
