Puchkov Takes Some From Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth made it 1,300 from under the gun and his lone caller was Konstantin Puchkov from middle position.

The flop came {Q-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Hellmuth continued for 1,700. Puchkov called.

"How much ya got there, buddy?" said Hellmuth as he glanced at Puchkov's stack.

The turn was the {K-Hearts} and both players checked. The {10-Spades} came on the river and Hellmuth checked again. Puchkov flicked out one t1,000 chip and Hellmuth called.

Puchkov showed {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} and Hellmuth mucked.

Despite losing this hand Hellmuth is still above starting stack as he has been quite active at his table since the moment he sat down.
