On fifth street, Phil Hellmuth was all in for 13,000 and Kahle Burns raised with a big bet to 29,000. Back on Allen Kessler, he called after some thought. A sizable crowd started gathering to see the 15-time bracelet winner being at risk.
Burns check-called bets from Kessler on sixth and seventh street before all hands went to showdown. Kessler was the first to reveal, slowly rolling over for a pair of sixes and 8-7-6-5-2 low. Burns then tabled for aces and nines.
Hellmuth was last to act and turned over to make a 7-4-3-2-A low to claim half the pot.
"Needs a low to survive!" Daniel Negreanu cheerfully quipped, who was filming the whole showdown for his vlog.
