Tedeschi Fires Hellmuth Up

Phil Hellmuth being Phil Hellmuth

Paul Tedeschi raised to 7,500 from middle position, and Phill Hellmuth quickly three-bet him to 35,000 from the cutoff. The action was folded back around to Tedeschi who tanke for a bit.

"I'll take this one, you'll take the next one kid!" Hellmuth said. It didn't help as Tedeschi made the call.

The board ran out {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{10-Spades}{4-Spades} as both players checked the hand down.

"Jack," Tedeschi said before he turned over his {J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Hellmuth immediately stood up from his chair and snapped his cards back and forth.

"You put in 35,000 chips with jack high? You wanna play? I'll take'em!" Hellmuth said as he was visibly frustrated. "I had a straight flush draw. I was in front pre flop, in front on the flop and you were just a slight favorite on the turn" Hellmuth yelled as JC Alvarado, who had seen his cards, told Tedeschi that Hellmuth had {Q-}{10-} offsuit. Hellmuth took a small hit, but is still one of the big stacks in the room.
