Event #21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Hellmuth Chopped

• Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante

Phil Hellmuth continues to run his mouth regularly, even while in hands.

He stomped on an early position limper making it 700. The limper called and check-called an 800-chip bet on the {9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Spades} flop. The limper checked the {q-Diamonds} turn and Hellmuth spoke up.

"Let me just do a little diamond check here," he said. "OK...check...he probably has eight-nine or something."

The river came the {4-Diamonds} and after they both checked, Hellmuth's opponent spoke up.

"I have an ace with a nine," he said, turning over {a-Clubs}{9-Hearts}.

"You have an ace with a nine?" Hellmuth asked, turning over {a-Spades}{9-Clubs} for virtually the same hand.
