WSOP Tournament of Champions

Hellmuth Turns the Nuts

Mike Matusow, Mike Sexton, Phil Hellmuth, Dan Harrington and Barry Greenstein all limped in and saw a {10-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{4-Spades} flop. The action was checked around. When the {J-Hearts} hit the turn, everyone checked to Matusow, who bet 1,300. Sexton folded and Hellmuth raised to 4,300. Harrington and Greenstein folded and Matusow called. The river was the {5-Hearts} and Matusow checked to Hellmuth, who bet 9,000. Matusow made the call.

"Nuts," Hellmuth said as he tabled {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} for a Broadway straight. Hellmuth took it down and is up to 34,975 in chips.
