We happened by Table 10 with 1,000 in the pot and a flop of . A woman in Seat 1 was already all in, and a player in middle-position checked to 13-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth in the cutoff.
Hellmuth took his time before putting out a bet, which inspired the middle-position player to fold. Hellmuth then tabled the for the flopped nuts, and the lady showed the for an inferior flush. Hellmuth seemed to have a lock on the hand, but the running turn and river gave the lady a low for half the pot.
"Good job, dealer," the lady said excitedly while Hellmuth sat quietly.
Despite winning a part of that pot, Hellmuth is down from the starting stack of 4,500.
