Hellmuth Makes a Mess, Doubles

[user101598] • Level 9: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Phil Hellmuth

John Juanda, Phil Hellmuth, and Christian Harder took a flop of {10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}, and Juanda led out for 8,100. Hellmuth raised to 23,000, leaving 32,700 behind, and Harder folded.

Juanda tanked for a bit before committing a large stack of pink T5,000 chips, putting Hellmuth all in for 55,700, and Hellmuth grabbed all of his chips with both hands and thrusted them into the pot.

One of his yellow T1,000 chips went flying off the table, landing at Alec Torelli's feet, and his stack was dangerously close to the rest of the pot. Phil Ivey settled the dispute, getting out of his chair to separate Hellmuth's all-in bet from the main pot.

"I trust Phil Ivey," said Hellmuth.

Hellmuth announced that he flopped a set of eights before actually showing the {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, and Juanda was drawing very live with {6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for straight and flush draws.

Unfortunately for Juanda, the turn ({5-Hearts}) and the river ({k-Spades}) were both bricks, and the 13-time bracelet winner doubled to around 130,000 chips. Juanda fell back down to 170,000.
