Event #2: $25,000 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Hellmuth Pays Off Gregg

[user153638] • Level 14: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

We happened upon the action with approximately 130,000 in the pot and a board reading {5-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Spades}. Phil Hellmuth had checked from the big blind and Anthony Gregg bet 72,000 from the cutoff.

Hellmuth shot up from out of his chair, asking the dealer, "How much?"

The thirteen-time bracelet winner sat back down and put in the chips to make the call. Gregg confidently rolled over the {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}, and Hellmuth, who won the 1989 WSOP Main Event with pocket nines 25 years ago, mucked his hand while uttering an expletive.
