Hellmuth previously won his three games against Antonio Esfandiari in 2020 for $ 400,000. He did it again in June 2021 when he swept Daniel Negreanu for another $ 400,000. Poker Brat continued its winning streak, shortening Wright’s Duel High Stakes just a month later. It was Dwan who put a damper on his undefeated record.
For the first time on the show, Hellmuth attempted defeat after Dwan made his ass with a pocket ten to get the $ 100,000 pot in round 2 in August last year.
