Hellmuth Takes Big Pot Off Mercier

Jason Mercier raised to 48,000 from the cutoff and was called by Phil Hellmuth from the big blind.

The flop was {10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{K-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {2-Clubs} hit the turn. Hellmuth led out for 75,000 and Mercier slowly and deliberately counted out a raise to 192,000.

Hellmuth shot out of his seat and looked down at the board.

"Alright, I call," Hellmuth said with fervor.

The {6-Spades} paired the board on the river and Hellmuth checked. Mercier moved 263,000 into the middle and Hellmuth quickly announced a call. Mercier showed {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} for top pair but was ultimately behind Hellmuth's {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for trip sixes.
