Alexander Petersen and Phil Hellmuth went heads-up to a flop of {6-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}, Petersen from middle position and Hellmuth in the big blind.

Petersen bet 300,000 and Hellmuth pushed his entire stack forward, a bet totaling 1,960,000 more.

"You probably don't have aces," Petersen said, muttering to himself all Hellmuth's potential hands.

"I'll take this one. You take the next one. Or you can double me up, my wife is here," Hellmuth responded.

Petersen went into the tank for more than five minutes, using up several of his time bank chips. He eventually decided to commit the chips.

Phil Hellmuth: {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Alexander Petersen: {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Hellmuth had top two pair, while Petersen had tens and a flush draw. Hellmuth filled up on the {6-Diamonds} turn, leaving Petersen with two outs heading to the river which he failed to hit when the {9-Spades} fell.
