Gary Benson opened for 600 and action folded to 13-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, who was already all in from the big blind for his last 275.
"I haven't looked," Hellmuth said before revealing his hand.
Hellmuth seemed delighted to be in a race situation, but his enthusiasm dampened when the flop came down .
"Oh, that's not good," Hellmuth said. The turn left him drawing dead, and as the dealer put out the on the river, Hellmuth was already busy shaking hands with everyone at the table.
"What time do we start tomorrow? I should probably show up before 15 bigs," Hellmuth said before departing. For what it's worth, Day 1b will kick off at 12:10 p.m. local time on Friday, with Day 1c following later that evening at 6:10 p.m.
