Hellmuth Gets His Reads Right

• Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante

Phil Hellmuth had fired out 2,800 on a {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Spades} flop before his opponent declared, "Sorry, I'm all in."

"No need to apologise," replied Hellmuth.

"I'll show you," continued the big blind, "so you don't go ballistic on me..."

Hellmuth folded and said, "You've probably got something like ace-queen with the ace of spades..."

Indeed the big blind showed him {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts}.
