Hellmuth Bets Small, Gets Paid

[user249920] • Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante

Phil Hellmuth defended his big blind from a middle-position raise, and both players checked the {6-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop. After a {k-Clubs} turn, Hellmuth checked again and his opponent bet an unknown amount by throwing out a T1,000 chip and verbalizing his bet. Hellmuth raised to 1,700, and his opponent called. Hellmuth bet 1,200 on the {2-Clubs} river.

"I guess I have to pay you off," Hellmuth's opponent said.

"King-jack," Hellmuth announced.

"KIng-jack is good."

Also, Laz Hernandez and Maurice Hawkins have taken seats nearby.
