Ace on the River for Hellmuth


Phil Hellmuth raised to 80,000 from the button and received a call from Joseph Cheong in the small blind. Both players checked the {7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{J-Hearts} flop, and then Cheong led out for 90,000 on the {3-Diamonds} turn. Hellmuth made the call and then fired out 180,000 when Cheong checked the {A-Hearts} river. The latter thought for about 90 seconds before making the call, but mucked when Hellmuth revealed {A-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a rivered pir of aces.
