Hellmuth Eliminated, Rant Ensues

[user249920] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Phil Hellmuth didn't take kindly to the three-outer that busted him.

Jeremy Kottler opened for 13,000 on the button, and Phil Hellmuth three-bet to 30,000 out of the big blind. Kottler shoved all in, and Hellmuth almost beat him into the pot.

Hellmuth: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}
Kottler: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The dealer spread the flop: {10-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{a-Hearts}, leaving Hellmuth gasping with just one out. The {k-Hearts} arrived on the turn to give Hellmuth some additional equity, but the {k-Diamonds} river prompted Hellmuth to vent his frustrations.

"I got him to put it in there with ace-jack," Hellmuth said. "Are you f****** kidding me?"

"What a f****** monkey," Hellmuth continued. "I knew he would give me all of his chips. Nice play. Good luck everybody."
