Hellmuth On Fire Early

With the flop reading {Q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, Ramin Hajiyev led out for 5,700. Jean-Noel Thorel called and Phil Hellmuth called as well.

The {8-Spades} fell on the turn and Hajiyev slowed down with a check. Thorel fired 12,000 and Hellmuth quickly called. Hajiyev folded and the two were heads up to fifth street.

They saw the {9-Diamonds} complete the board and Thorel fired one last bet of 24,000. Hellmuth flung out a call and showed {Q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

Thorel mucked his hand and Hellmuth rocketed up from his seat.

"White magic! That's what we call it, boys!" Hellmuth shouted as he dragged in his new chips.
