Zachary Korik has got off to a great start and has doubled through Phil Hellmuth on the very first hand of play.
Mark Darner opened to 20,000 only to see Korik three-bet all-in for 221,000. Hellmuth instantly announced "call" and the remaining players ducked out of the way.
it was one of tournament poker's many coinflip scenarios and one that Hellmuth would lose. The flop was safe as it gets for pocket sevens, and the turn kept them ahead. The river completed the board and Korik's double up.
Vladimir Geshkenbein needled Hellmuth by saying: "Oh Phil! What are you doing? Putting your money in with ace-high."
Hellmuth responded by saying he lost every flip he played on Day 2 but was still among the chip leaders.
