Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Hellmuth Doubles

• Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

After calling a preflop raise and folding on the flop, Phil Hellmuth was knocked down to about 4,000.

However, he has doubled up and now has a stack of 8,850. After Rick Rahim and another middle-position player called, Hellmuth raised to 3,000 from the cutoff, leaving himself 700 behind. Action folded around to Rahim and he quickly folded. The other player in the hand spent about a minute mulling it over before re-raising, prompting Hellmuth to call all in for his remaining 700.

Hellmuth: {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades}
Opponent: {K-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

The board ran out a safe {7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{4-Spades}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, keeping Hellmuth's Main Event alive.
