Hellmuth won the King Of The Mountain title, and incredibly overcome in a heads-up against Dan Cates.
Hellmuth and Cates made it into the finals of the new television show by defeating Doug Polk and Frank Kassela.
The heads-up started for Hellmuth quite successfully. Despite the fact that he lost half the stack at the very beginning of the first match, Phil quickly turned the tables and won the game. In the second match, he allowed himself too much bluffing, which was quickly caught by Cates, who calmly took the legend’s stack. The third and the decisive match was the continuation of the second. During it, Hellmuth was bluffing while Cates continued to win with strong hands. Hellmuth managed to take control only when he was left with $5,800 (against Cates who had $194,200.)
Hellmuth was gradually getting out. The hand, in which Cates believed in Hellmuth's bluff and did not put $10,000 in a $60,000 pot appeared to be the turning point. The next hour and a half were passing in a rather intense matchup. Hellmuth had a psychological edge, which made him win nearly the lost game.
The win brought Hellmuth $200,000 and the desired King of the Mountain belt.
