"I Started with a Big Hand, and I'm Trying to Finish it with a Big Hand"


A limped pot saw all three players take a flop of {7-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{8-Clubs} and Sergii Baranov led out for 130,000 from the small blind. Stephane Albertini folded from the big, and Phil Hellmuth raised to 400,000. "I started with a big hand, and I'm trying to finish it with a big hand," Hellmuth said.

Baranov was a believer and folded his hand, which prompted Hellmuth to show {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}. "I limped with nine," the 12-time bracelet winner said with a proud smile on his face.
