"Honey! I Just Saved My Life!"

• Level 25: 20,000-40,000, 10,000 ante
Phil Hellmuth

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 {10-}{6-}{5-}{3-}{2-}.

"Here! Show him! Show him what I threw away!" Hellmuth said to the dealer, reaching into the muck. Hellmuth picked out {J-Hearts} 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.
