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

Geshkenbein Doubled Through Hellmuth

[user169806] • Level 23: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth was first to act on the button and he asked Vladimir Geshkenbein how many chips he was playing, before raising to 55,000.

"Ah, committing yourself," said Geshkenbein, "I like it."

"I tell you what, I'll gamble with you, Russian. I'll call in the dark," said Hellmuth before putting a tower of green T25,000 chips into the middle.

Geshkenbein moved all-in and Hellmuth had already called

Hellmuth: {A-Spades}{4-Spades}

Geshkenbein: {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

The board ran {A-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} and Hellmuth exploded.

"How the f**k does the six play?" referring to the fact Geshkenbein's low kicker won him the pot. "I fold on your blind 10 times in a row, wait until I get an ace and then you have a bigger kicker."

Geshkenbein laughed and fired his toy gun at Hellmuth.

"Nice hand, Russian," said Hellmuth when he returned to his seat.
