Frank Henderson

Frank Henderson, who won a WSOP gold bracelet back in 1989, had been nursing a short stack for quite some time before he finally found a hand he liked.

He completed with a {4-} and Brandon Cantu called with a {7-}. Phil Hellmuth, who won his first gold bracelet the same year Henderson won his, then raised to 10,000 with a {7-} of his own. Henderson made it 15,000 to go, Cantu folded, and Hellmuth made it 20,000 knowing Henderson only had 4,000 back. It went in and Hellmuth called.

Hellmuth: {a-}{4-} / {7-}{j-}{2-}{j-} / {5-}
Henderson: {6-}{3-} / {4-}{8-}{6-}{7-} / {2-}

Henderson wanted to see Hellmuth's last card first, and the "Poker Brat" followed etiquette and showed a {5-} to make a 7-5-4-2-A low. It was a dagger through Henderson's heart as it left him drawing dead and rendered his {2-} useless.
