Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

More Hellmuth and Andrulis Back and Forth


From under the gun, Phil Hellmuth limped in. Robert Schiffbauer also limped from the hijack seat, then Kristijonas Andrulis raised to 6,000 on the button. Hellmuth called, and Schiffbauer folded.

The flop came down {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Hearts} with Hellmuth having checked in the dark. Andrulis fired 5,000, but Hellmuth check-raised to 11,000.

"I'm gonna put my sunglasses on for this one," said Hellmuth as he waited for Andrulis to make a decision.

"Why would you do that?" replied Andrulis. He then called.

"Wow, the kid called!" said Hellmuth.

The turn was the {K-Diamonds}, and Hellmuth checked. Andrulis tossed out 13,000. Hellmuth laughed, but in a disgusted manner and flipped over the {A-Spades}{5-Spades} as he folded. Andrulis slammed over the {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts} for a worse hand and laughed out loud at Hellmuth. This sent Hellmuth off a little bit.

"Wow! He came at me with nine-ten when I had the nut flush draw!" exclaimed Hellmuth. "In two hours you're gonna ask yourself, 'What did I do?' while you're in the taxi ride home and thinking about how you gave Phil all your chips."

Andrulis couldn't do much, but laugh. Later he added, "I just wish we could play tomorrow if I make it, at the same table."
