WSOP Tournament of Champions

Phil Still Pholding

Phil Hellmuth just keeps folding away. He was doing a better job of conserving his stack when he wasn't here. In the latest of five or six hands to end with a tank-fold, Hellmuth raised to 700 under the gun. Mike Matusow and Mike Sexton both called. They checked around the {k-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop. On the {8-Diamonds} turn, Mike Sexton bet 1,400, and only Hellmuth called. The river paired the board with the {8-Clubs}. Sexton overbet the pot, putting 8,000 out there. And two minutes later, Hellmuth folded.

The next hand, he and Mike Sexton both checked a {9-Spades}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop. The turn was the {8-Hearts}, and Sexton check-called Hellmuth's 1,200 bet. Then Sexton bet out 2,000 on the {j-Hearts} river. "What the f*%k? Am I getting cheated or something?" Hellmuth said as he folded another one.
He's got another 15,000 left to fold the next hand.
