Phil Hellmuth opened to 1,550 from under the gun. It folded around to the blinds and they both called.
"White magic!" shouted Daniel Negreanu from across the room. Hellmuth flashed back a smile.
The flop fell and there were two checks to Hellmuth. He continued for 4,000 and the small blind folded. The big blind moved all in for roughly 10,000 more and Hellmuth called.
Hellmuth was ahead but needed to dodge diamonds on the subsequent streets. The on the turn brought him one step closer to victory and the on the river sealed the deal.
Hellmuth has been slowly trending upward since he first took his seat today and is currently sitting around 80,000.
