Event #15: $3,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

An Early Double for Hellmuth

[user153638] • Level 11: 500-1,000, 100 ante

On a {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop, the small blind led out for 10,000 and Ayman Qutami raised to 25,000. Phil Hellmuth then instantly moved all in for 55,500. The original raiser tanked for two minutes before folding, and then Qutami tanked for five minutes before calling.

Qutami: {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}

Qutami held an overpair, but Hellmuth managed to flop a set. Neither the {7-Clubs} turn nor {8-Spades} river influenced the hand, and Hellmuth clapped his hands together in celebration of the early double.
