Phil Hellmuth

Matt "jacksup" Matros opened under the gun for 12,000, Dan "Powerplay111" Matsuzuki called from the cutoff, as did Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth from the button.

The {6-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} flop saw Matros continue for 24,000 and Matsuzuki raised to 114,000. Action was on Hellmuth who called off his 22,790 stack and Matros folded.

Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{3-Spades}
Dan "Powerplay111" Matsuzuki: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Hellmuth was ahead with his pair of kings but the {a-Diamonds} turn completed Matsuzuki 's flush and the {7-Diamonds} river ended Hellmuth's tournament just before the money bubble.
