Event #22: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship

You Can't Make a Wheel With A-6-7

• Level 5
Mike Matusow and Phil Hellmuth

Omaha 8

Mike Matusow just shared some gems with the player to his left, as he told Phil Hellmuth that it's impossible to make a wheel holding A-6-7.

The action started with a raise from Matusow and Hellmuth three-bet immediately from the button. The action folded back to Matusow who quickly called.

The flop brought out {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Spades} and both players checked. On the turn the {5-Spades} hit and Matusow bet, Hellmuth called. The river was the {2-Diamonds} and Hellmuth called another bet.

Matusow announced, "wheel," and showed {A-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} while Hellmuth stared at his cards for a while before throwing them into the muck.

Matusow had seen Hellmuth's cards and yelled, "You can't make a wheel with A-6-7 Phill!"

"Mike is so funny," Hellmuth mumbled before saying, "You were a million miles behind!"

"Now I'm just going to take all your gifts Mike," Hellmuth continued.

Matusow's response couldn't have been any better, as he kindly rubbed Hellmuth's head, as the 13-time champ sulked.
