Phil Hellmuth, pictured in a previous event.

Phil Hellmuth opened to 600 in the cutoff, and the player on the button made it 1,800 to go. Hellmuth called, and both players checked the {4-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{j-Spades} flop. Hellmuth checked again on the {10-Spades} turn, and his opponent bet 2,000. Hellmuth called, and the {q-Spades} river prompted him to fire out a huge bet of 10,000. His opponent thought a bit before calling.

"Ace-high flush," Hellmuth said, showing {a-Spades}{5-Spades}.

The next hand, a player opened to 800 from under the gun, and Hellmuth three-bet to 2,500. His opponent four-bet to 6,600, and Hellmuth quickly called. On the {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} flop, Hellmuth's opponent cut out a continuation-bet, and Hellmuth loudly announced all in. His opponent insta-mucked.

"He folded?" Hellmuth asked. "Boy, did I put a bluff on you," he said with a smile before showing {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}.

"You're a sick man," he continued. "I let you raise 30 hands in a row, then I reraise you one time and you four-bet me like that?!"
