After wrapping up a late night poker session at a casino in Pittsburgh, poker legend Phil Hellmuth was offered 10-1 on a three-point shot, with no warm-up.

The “Poker Brat” didn’t disappoint himself.

Hellmuth stood to win $15,000 against his $1,500.

Multiple people had action on the shot, but Doug Polk had the bulk of the liability. The likes of Olivier Busquet and Shaun Deeb were also there to witness the action. There was some trouble finding a court, and a ball, after midnight, but at around 2 a.m. local time everything was set.

The group had settled on a random parking lot with a hoop sandwiched between a commercial van and a chain-link fence. Check out the video posted to Twitter by Polk, who asked for donations to his YouTube channel to pay off Hellmuth. “I don’t want to go to Macau,” Polk said.
