The historic hand unfolded as follows: Hellmuth limped in from the button and Juha Helppi moved all-in. Hellmuth immediately called, jumping to his feet again and turning over A♠ J♥ to his rival's A♦ 9♥. Hellmuth sat down and stared at the felt as the board came Q♠ 8♠ 2♣ K♠ and Helppi moved to Hellmuth's right, hand outstretched as the players waited for the river. The river came 6♣ and Hellmuth leapt to his feet again and was mobbed by spectators, including a very, very excited Mike Matusow. Eventually Hellmuth and Helppi were able to embrace each other before Phil was presented with the record-tying 10th bracelet.
Hellmuth also takes home $631,863, while Helppi earns $331,144.
