Phil Hellmuth in the big blind checked the turn and called a bet of 53,000 by Sam Higgs from under the gun to see the on the river. Hellmuth checked once more and Higgs tossed in a bet of 200,000.
No call followed as Hellmuth folded and Higgs double-checked his cards. He picked them up again and showed to the rail without any other players being able to see them, which prompted some table chat from Hellmuth.
"Every time they do that, they are bluffing me," Hellmuth remarked.
