Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Phil on Probability; or, Aces for All

Shamus • Level 13: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Phil Hellmuth (middle position) and an opponent (late position) had built a pot of about 25,000 when they both checked the turn, the board showing {2-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. The river brought another deuce -- the {2-Hearts} -- and Hellmuth quickly bet 15,500. His opponent thought just a moment, then called.

Hellmuth rapidly flipped over {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} and his opponent nodded and mucked. "Boys, I have 'em, too, sometimes," said Hellmuth as he gathered the chips.

The Poker Brat is up to 134,000 now.
