Hellmuth Keeps His Seat

Shamus • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
The cameras roll as Phil Hellmuth keeps his seat.

Phil Hellmuth was just now all in with his tourney life on the line -- a rare occurrence, as we all know. The chips were in and at risk by the turn with the board showing {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. Hellmuth stood by his chair over his tabled cards -- {K-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} for a Broadway straight. Meanwhile, his opponent had {A-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for two pair.

Play was paused as the camera folk hastily fell into place, and after some delay the dealer was instructed to resume. He burned a card and delivered the river -- the {4-Diamonds}.

"Yes!" said Hellmuth as he sat back down. He's now at 72,000.
