Phil Hellmuth started the hand with about starting stack, and opened to 5,400 from the hijack seat. A player in the cutoff three-bet to 15,400, and the action folded back to Hellmuth.

The man stayed silent. Hellmuth remained in the tank for quite a long while before finally folding face-up, leaving himself with just 25,000 chips.
