Phil Hellmuth

Hellmuth raised on the button, Eddie Blumenthal called from the small blind, and Ari Engel made it three-bets from the big blind. Both Hellmuth and Blumenthal called.

The flop came {8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{7-Spades} and Blumenthal checked. Engel bet and Hellmuth called all in. Blumenthal also called.

Both players checked on the {9-Hearts} turn and Blumenthal checked again on the {6-Clubs} river — prompting a bet from Engel. Blumenthal called.

Phil Hellmuth: {k-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts}
Eddie Blumenthal: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Ari Engel: {a-Spades}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}

Engel and Blumenthal split the pot and eliminated Hellmuth from contention.
