Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Hellmuth Active as Clock Ticks Down

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

With the board showing {10-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{9-Hearts}, an early position player checked and Phil Hellmuth fired 30,000. His opponent called. The river brought the {9-Diamonds} and another check from Hellmuth's opponent. The 11-time bracelet winner promptly announced he was all in, and spent the next minute counting out his chips -- 48,700. His opponent thought about ten seconds, then sent his cards dealerward.

Hellmuth showed his hand -- {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts} -- and scooped the pot. He opened the next hand with a raise to 7,500 and claimed the blinds and antes, carrying him up close to 110,000 as we move into the final half-hour of play tonight.
