Hand #31: Phil Hellmuth raised to 405,000 from under the gun and Tony Dunst asked how much more Hellmuth had behind. It was around 70,000 more, and Dunst decided to shove from the cutoff. The rest folded and Hellmuth called for his tournament life.

Phil Hellmuth: {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}
Tony Dunst: {a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The flop came {2-Spades}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts} for Dunst to hit top pair and Hellmuth an open-ended straight draw.

The turn was the {a-Spades} to give Hellmuth the wheel indeed but it also gave Dunst two pair and a chance to improve to a full house.

The river completed the board with the {a-Hearts} to give Dunst a full house to eliminate Hellmuth. Hellmuth got up from his chair, shook Dunst's hand and then went to every other player to shake their hand.

"I know one person that will be happy! Where is Mori! Now I can do the f*cking ESPN stuff!" Hellmuth said while smiling, bringing chuckles from the rest of the table and rail.
