Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth: {2-Hearts}{5-Clubs} / {5-Hearts}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} / {7-Diamonds}
Eric Rodawig: {J-Spades}{8-Clubs} / {A-Spades}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{10-Clubs} / {Q-Diamonds}

Phil Hellmuth was all in by fifth street and ahead against Eric Rodawig but the latter pulled out a queen on seventh to make a straight. Hellmuth now needed to make a low or full house otherwise he'd finish in second place. He picked up the {7-Diamonds} and it was back to the battle.

Soon after though...

Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {5-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} / {x-}
Rodawig: {x-}{x-} / {Q-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} / {x-}

Hellmuth was all in by sixth and showing {4-Clubs}{2-Spades} and picked up the {3-Clubs} on the seventh to scoop as Rodawig flipped {8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} for only a lowly pair of fives.

Hellmuth is back in this.
