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

Hellmuth Building Back Up

[user153638] • Level 21: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth raised to 28,000 under the gun and Gabriel Andrade called him from the cutoff. Hellmuth then check-called a bet of 20,000 on the {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop before both players checked the {J-Diamonds} turn.

When the {5-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, Hellmuth double checked his cards. "Diamond check, hold on," he said. The "Poker Brat" then bet 62,000. Andrade wasted little time in calling with the {q-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}, but his flush was no good as Hellmuth held the nuts with the {k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}.

Andrade seemed irritated that Hellmuth called 20,000 on the flop and began to voice his frustrations. Hellmuth jabbed back, and it looks like we can expect some verbal jousting from these two here in the early goings.
