John Juanda popped it up to 90,000 and was called by Phil Hellmuth. Both men drew one card and the action went check-check.
Hellmuth turned up a winning .
"Here! Show him! Show him what I threw away!" Hellmuth said to the dealer, reaching into the muck. Hellmuth picked out and showed it to Juanda. "You were supposed to bust me there! Tournament over! Anyone else shoves there with jack low, then you pull the ten and tournament over! I just had a bad feeling about the jack!"
"The great Phil Hellmuth instincts" said Juanda with a smile.
But Hellmuth wasn't done with his jubilation there.
"Honey!" Phil shouted into the crowd toward his wife. "I just saved my life! He was supposed to bust me there but I just saved my own life!"
Hellmuth is now sitting with 1,000,000 in chips to Juanda's 2,800,000.
