Hellmuth Clashes With Pergolizzi

Phil Hellmuth opened to 8,000 from under the gun and was called by Paul Tedeschi from the button, Axel Pergolizzi from the small blind, and Andy Frankenberger from the big blind.

The four players saw a flop of {3-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} fall and it was checked to Hellmuth who bet 20,000. Tedeschi folded and Pergolizzi called. Frankenberger got out of the way and the {5-Diamonds} turned.

Pergolizzi checked a second time and Hellmuth fired 50,000. Pergolizzi called once again.

"Pair the board, dealer!" Hellmuth shouted.

The dealer obliged, as the {7-Hearts} fell on the river. Pergolizzi checked and Hellmuth moved 100,000 into the middle. Pergolizzi folded his cards and Hellmuth took down the pot.

"Show the bluff," someone chimed in at the table.

"Show the bluff? I've got the nuts," retorted Hellmuth, tabling {A-Clubs}{7-Spades}.
