Don Zewin brought it in with a {6-} and was called by Phil Hellmuth, who was showing a {2-}. The 11-time bracelet winner then led out on the turn and Zewin said, "Alright, let's do it," before raising. He had 5,000 back so Hellmuth three-bet and the tournament was on the line.

Zewin: {3-}{9-} / {6-}{K-}{J-}{3-} / (x)
Hellmuth: {A-}{4-} / {A-}{2-}{J-}{4-} / {10-}

Zewin was drawing line headed to seventh and he slowly squeezed out the last card. He seemed to know what this tournament meant to Hellmuth, and he said, "Go ahead. you got it." His last card was a {9-}.

Zewin was there when Hellmuth won his first bracelet way back in 1989, and he was there for the latest. As a consolation prize, Zewin will take home $113,024.
