Hellmuth Takes a Big One

• Level 14: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Phil Hellmuth

A player raised to 5,500 from early position and Phil Hellmuth three-bet to 13,000 from middle position. His opponent made the call and the flop was {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and both players checked. The turn was the {9-Clubs} and Hellmuth's opponent check-called his 18,000 bet.

The river was the {a-Hearts} and this time Hellmuth's opponent led for approximately 30,000 and Hellmuth snap-called and excitedly gathered his chips after tabling {a-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} versus the {a-Diamonds}{k-Hearts} of his opponent.
