Pot Limit Omaha
Besim Hot raised the pot to 750,000 on the button and Phil Hellmuth called out of the big blind. The flop came and Hellmuth checked to Hot who bet 500,000. Hellmuth check-raised to 2,000,000 and Hot shoved all in. Hellmuth committed his entire stack of just under 7,000,000.
Hellmuth was currently in the lead with an ace-kicker but Hot still had plenty of outs. The on the turn was one of them as Hot improved to a full house. Hellmuth was left drawing to an ace and the on the river was not going to cut it. Hellmuth was forced to settle for his 11th runner-up finish while Hot will celebrate his first WSOP gold bracelet.
A full tournament recap along with a winner's interview will follow shortly.
