Hellmuth Puts on a Folding Clinic

Phil Hellmuth raised to 800 under the gun, and Scotty Nguyen flatted. Mike Sexton called in the big blind, and they went three-handed to the {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{6-Spades} flop. All three checked to the {j-Hearts} turn. Sexton checked again, and Hellmuth bet 1,400. Nguyen raised it up to 6,400. Sexton folded, and Hellmuth tank-called. Phil checked the {5-Hearts} river, and Nguyen fired 15,000. Hellmuth thought for a minute or two while Mike Matusow berated him for taking so long to make every decision. Finally, he folded, saying he was mucking king-jack. Nguyen showed the {10-Clubs}. "Ten-high, baby."
