Straight For Hellmuth

Jospeh Cheong was first to act and raised to 90,000. It folded around to Phil Hellmuth who called from the big blind.

The dealer produced {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and both players checked. The {9-Clubs} hit the turn and the duo checked once more.

The board finished with the {7-Spades} and Hellmuth checked. Cheong fired 100,000 and Hellmuth picked up four t100,000 plaques and threw them into the middle for a raise to 400,000. Cheong called.

"Straight," said Hellmuth, showing {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Cheong mucked and Hellmuth took the pot.
