Baranov Sets Hellmuth Off

Sergii Baranov had the button and raised to 90,000. Phil Hellmuth was his lone caller from the small blind.

The flop brought {6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and both players checked. The {4-Diamonds} turned and prompted Hellmuth to bet 150,000. Baranov called and the {J-Spades} hit the river. Hellmuth checked and Baranov bet 190,000.

"I think you got me here," said Hellmuth. Despite this statement Hellmuth threw out a call and Baranov showed {K-Spades}{j-Hearts} for a rivered pair of jacks.

Hellmuth jumped out of his seat, showing {A-Hearts}{4-Hearts} in the process for the second best hand.

"I've got them drawing dead every hand!" continued Hellmuth. "What do they call me with!? Wow. This is so sick. They play so bad."

With this win Baranov is now closing the gap between himself and chipleader Hellmuth.
