WSOP Tournament of Champions

Seed Growing, Hellmuth Blinding Away

Howard Lederer limped on the button, Phil Hellmuth called from the small blind with three big blinds behind, and Huck Seed checked his option. The flop came down {q-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and Hellmuth and Seed checked. Lederer bet 3,200, and only Seed called. Hellmuth opted to save his 4,000 for a better spot. After checking down the blanks on the turn and river, Seed turned over {q-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and took the pot with queens and sevens. He's up to 85,000 while Lederer was left with 26,700.
