Alberto Gomez raised to 8,500 from under the gun and Melanie Weisner called from the next seat across. The action then folded around to Phil Hellmuth in the cutoff and he raised to 43,000. Gomez eventually called, but Weisner mucked.

The flop came down {J-Spades}{4-Clubs}{6-Spades}, Gomez checked and Hellmuth immediately checked behind. Gomez then led for 28,000 on the {7-Diamonds} turn only to see Hellmuth make it 61,000 to go. Gomez called. Both players checked the {2-Spades}.

Gomez turned the {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs} onto their backs and Hellmuth mucked.

"F**k! I knew it was queens," said Hellmuth has he stood from his seat. "That one hurt."

It sure did because it robbed Hellmuth of almost half his stack.
