We saw 13-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth standing at his table, and we rushed over to see what was going on. We arrived to see Hellmuth all in against two players, including reigning Aussie Millions champ Ami Barer.
From what we could piece together from Hellmuth's ramblings after the fact, it was a five-bet pot and Barer had "snap-called it off with king-queen offsuit."
Hellmuth got it in good, but Barer flopped pure when the flop gave him a full house. The turn guaranteed him the pot, and just to rub salt in the wound the dealer put the on the river to give Hellmuth a meaningless full house of his own.
"I lose everyday, but I love it," Hellmuth said as he shook hands with the table. Hellmuth then explained he has been playing great here at the WSOP APAC, but players have been sucking out on him.
