Phil Hellmuth

Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth, who hosts The Raw Deal for the World Poker Tour, raised to 125,000 under the gun and the man he replaced in the segment Tony "Panoramic" Dunst, who was promoted to commentator alongside Vince Van Patten, called from the button.

Both blinds folded and it was heads-up action to the {3-Spades}{a-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop. Hellmuth check-called a bet of 125,000 and then checked for the second time on the {k-Hearts} turn. Dunst bet 220,000 and then called when Hellmuth check-raised all in for 889,789.

Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth: {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Tony "Panoramic" Dunst: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}

Dunst flopped a pair of aces to take the lead but Hellmuth turned a set to secure the double. The meaningless {8-Hearts} was run out on the river and Hellmuth doubled to second in chips.
