The flop read and Phil Hellmuth checked. JC Alvarado bet 7,000 only to have Hellmuth make it 22,000.
"That's what I do, kid," Hellmuth said. "I check-raise."
Alvarado sat thinking of what action to take on the hand.
"Throw it away, kid, I'll show ya." said Hellmuth.
Eventually Alvarado agreed and threw his cards away. Hellmuth turned over for absolutely nothing.
"You raise my blind and I think you're weak, I'll raise you," Hellmuth said as he scooped up the pot.
