Hellmuth Cracks Nguyen

• Level 17: 2,000-4,000, 500 ante
Phil Hellmuth

We picked up the action with a board of {3-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and a check from Phil Hellmuth. His heads-up opponent was Soi Nguyen and he bet 9,000. Hellmuth raised to 24,000 and Nguyen made the call. The turn was the {5-Clubs} and Hellmuth bet 33,000 and Nguyen called.

The river was the {8-Spades} and Hellmuth bet 41,000. Nguyen made the call with {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}, only to see the bad news as Hellmuth tabled {k-Clubs}{2-Clubs} for the flush.

Hellmuth apologetically took the big pot and left Nguyen with just a few big blinds; Nguyen would bust on the next hand.
