Phil Hellmuth was among those to maximum late-reg the tournament, entering at 600/1200 blinds.

With 12,000 left in his stack, Hellmuth limped on the button, and the big blind checked.

The dealer spread a flop of {3-Clubs}{j-Spades}{6-Spades} and the big blind checked to Hellmuth who bet 2,000. The big blind check-raised all-in and "The Poker Brat" happily shoved his chips forward in Hellmuthian fashion.

Phil Hellmuth: {j-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Big blind opponent: {q-Spades}{8-Spades}

Hellmuth was ahead with top pair, but needed to fade his opponent's flush draw.

The sweat didn't last long as the {k-Spades} fell on the turn, making his opponent's flush and ending Hellmuth's day.
