Tom Dwan Beats Phil Hellmuth At High Stakes Duel III, Breaks Hellmuth’s Winning Streak


Phil Hellmuth’s seven-time heads-up winning streak was finally broken after Tom Dwan beat Hellmuth in the second round of PokerGo’s High Stakes Duel III match. The second-round match featured a buy-in of $1,00,000, and Dwan walked away with the entire $2,00,000 in prize money and Hellmuth refused a rematch.

Hellmuth won the first two editions of the High Stake Duel III, beating Antonio Esfandiari and Daniel Negreanu. The pro pocketed a hefty $3,50,000 from each of his wins. Hellmuth went heads-up against sports broadcaster Nick Wright in the first round of the High Stakes Duel III and reclaimed victory beating Wright in the $50,000 buy-in event. Wright refused to rematch, paving the way for Dwan to play against Hellmuth in the second match.

Dwan and Hellmuth went all-in preflop in the first match. Dwan held pocket 10s, while Hellmuth held pocket aces. Hellmuth and Dwan had a banter at the table, where the former said to Dwan, “You’re the sucker. You just put 20,000 in with two 10s,” said Hellmuth in 2008. “We’ll see if you’re even around in five years.” Dwan replied saying, “We’ll see if you’re even around in five years.” Dwan nailed his victory when a 10 showed up on the flop, defeating Hellmuth with his pocket aces.

The second match followed a similar pattern wherein, Dwan won with a higher two pair on the flop of QSpade Suit10Diamond Suit5Spade Suit. The third match worked no magic in favour of Hellmuth when he tried to bluff with an ace-high on the 9Diamond Suit9Spade Suit8Spade SuitJHeart Suit  board, but Dwan, who moved all-in with 10Spade Suit7Club Suit, won with a straight, won the hand. By now Hellmuth was at a 3:1 chip deficit against Dwan. 

Finally, when the blinds increased to 2,000-4,000, Hellmuth held pocket aces, while Dwan sat with 9Spade Suit3Club Suit. The flop opened to 5Club Suit3Heart Suit2Heart Suit, Dwan bet 5,000 and Hellmuth went all-in with his remaining 16,000. Dwan called and 9Club Suit6Club Suitopened on the board. Hellmuth was busted and Dwan emerged victoriously.
