Girault Finds a Double


In the second hand back from the break, Phil Hellmuth raised to 60,000 from the cutoff only to have Stephane Girault move all in from the button. The blinds got out of the way, and Hellmuth asked for a count. "I'm pretty sure I'm calling," he said. The 256K price sounded right and Hellmuth did make the call.

Girault: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}

Girault woke up with the best possible hand at the right time and he secured a double when the board ran out {Q-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{K-Diamonds}.
