WSOP Tournament of Champions

Hellmuth Can't Call the River

The action folded around to Phil Hellmuth, who limped in. Daniel Negreanu checked his option in the big blind.

The flop was {J-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}. Negreanu checked and Hellmuth checked behind. The turn was the {A-Diamonds} and Negreanu took a 1,500-chip stab at the pot. Hellmuth called. The river fell the {K-Diamonds} and Negreanu led again, this time for 3,000. Hellmuth said something about how much he lives for big pairs, which drew chuckles from around the table. He folded and Negreanu took the pot.
