Event #36: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball

Hellmuth Doubles, Then Busts One

• Level 7: 150-300, 75 ante

The player on the button raised to 800, Phil Hellmuth three-bet to 2,100 in the small blind and the button reraised to 6,700 effective. Hellmuth, in his patented lightning-quick fashion, committed the rest of his chips and stood pat.

His opponent drew one and Hellmuth showed {8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-}, having the hand locked up against his opponent's {9-} draw.

A few hands later, Hellmuth had an opponent all in for about 3,200 and in the tank about whether to break his hand. After his opponent finally decided to draw one card, Hellmuth stood pat and announced he had a {10-}.

"Damn, broke the winner," said Hellmuth's opponent, who showed {7-}{6-}{5-}{2-}. After squeezing his new card, Hellmuth's opponent showed a {K-}, falling to Hellmuth's {10-}{9-}{8-}{7-}{4-}.
