Hellmuth Takes a Small Hit

• Level 9: 300-600, 75 ante

Phil Hellmuth raised to 1,350 from middle position preflop and the player in the small blind called. The flop ran out {q-Spades}{4-Clubs}{4-Spades}. The player in the small blind checked and Hellmuth made it 900 to go. His opponent made the call.

The {6-Diamonds} hit on the turn. The player in the small blind checked and Hellmuth bet out 1,800. He said "I take this one, you take the next one" as his opponent was thinking. His opponent made the call and checked in the dark for the river.

The river brought the {j-Clubs} and Hellmuth checked. His opponent turned over {a-Spades}{j-Spades} and Hellmuth folded his cards into the muck.
