WSOP Tournament of Champions

Howard Lederer Doubles Through Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth opened for 1,600 from under-the-gun and Howard Lederer called from the big blind.

Both players checked the {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop. When the {2-Hearts} hit the turn, Lederer bet 2,500, Hellmuth raised, and Lederer moved all-in for 14,700. Hellmuth called.

Lederer {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts}
Hellmuth {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

Hellmuth needed to pair the board in order to outdraw Lederer's nut flush. The {A-Clubs}, however, fell on the river and Lederer scored a double-up to 33,800.
