Phil Hellmuth has had a tough time since he got back from the dinner break and has now seen his tournament come to an end. It was during a hand of Omaha Eight-or-Better, that started when Hellmuth posted the big blind - leaving himself with just a small amount behind.

"Well, regardless of what happens, it's been a great final table," Hellmuth said to his three foes, shaking each of their hands.

"It's not over yet Phil, you've got a lot of life left in you," said Monnette in reaction to the hand shake. However, Monnette was wrong.

Monnette opened the hand with a riase from under the gun and Hellmuth made the call. On the {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts} flop, Hellmuth checked and Monnette bet. Hellmuth then committed his last chips - an extra 15,000. Monnette called and the two players turned their hands over.

Monnette: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{j-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

The {9-Clubs} turn and the {8-Spades} turn were not what Hellmuth was looking for as he made his way home in 4th place. Another great effort from the 12-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner.
