Hellmuth Stays Strong

• Level 10: 400-800, 100 ante

Phil Hellmuth continues to build his stack late into Day 1. He limped in early position to put him heads up against the big blind pre flop. The flop came {j-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. The player in the big blind checked and Hellmuth made it 1,600. His opponent made the call.

The turn brought the {a-Diamonds} and the player in the big blind checked again. Hellmuth quickly moved all in and his opponent folded. He folded face up {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}. Saying to his opponent that "that turn was a bad turn for you. I limped in with Kings preflop."
