Calling Hellmuth

Shamus • Level 14: 1,500-3,000, 400 ante

A player in the cutoff raised to 7,500 and got one caller in Phil Hellmuth on the button. The flop came {9-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds} and Hellmuth's opponent continued for 11,500. Hellmuth quickly counted out the chips to call, and slid them forward. The turn was the {7-Clubs}, bringing another bet from the cutoff, this time for 22,500. Hellmuth quickly called again.

The river brought the {A-Hearts} and checks from both. Hellmuth's opponent showed {K-Clubs}{10-Hearts} for tens, better than Hellmuth's {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}.

Hellmuth slips to 65,000.
