2-7 Triple Draw
Two triple draw hands became the demise of Phil Hellmuth, who saw his attempt to win bracelet No. 16 end in third place. In the first hand, Hellmuth raised the small blind and Sandvik called. They both drew two apiece on the first draw and Hellmuth check-called a bet.
Hellmuth drew two cards on the second draw while Sandvik drew one. Once again, Hellmuth check-called. On the third draw, both drew one card and Hellmuth check-called another street.
Sandvik showed and Hellmuth mucked, leaving himself with just 120,000.
Two hands later, Sandvik raised on the button and Hellmuth called from the big blind. Hellmuth drew four cards while Sandvik took two.
Hellmuth put the rest of his chips in the middle and was all in, while Sandvik called him quickly.
On the next two draws, Hellmuth drew two cards each time, while Sandvik drew one. Agonizingly slow, Hellmuth revealed for a paired hand. Sandvik showed to take the pot and eliminate Hellmuth in third place.
