Hellmuth Staves off Elimination

Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth kept his tournament hopes alive after seeing his stack dwindle to 14,500, getting all of his chips in on a flop of {2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. An opponent in the small blind called, and the 15-time WSOP bracelet winner showed {5-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for a flopped straight.

The small blind got no help on the turn and river, and Hellmuth doubled up to 29,000.

"Did you have a flush draw?" Hellmuth asked, to which his opponent confirmed. "And you called off 10k with that?"
