An under-the-gun player opened for 325 and the player on the button called. Reigning Aussie Millions champ Ami Barer then three-bet to 1,225 from the small blind, Phil Hellmuth folded the big, and the original raiser called. The button got out of the way and it was heads-up action to the flop.
Barer checked, his opponent bet 775, and Barer quickly folded. Not much of a hand, but it gave us a good excuse to update you on the stacks of Hellmuth and Barer.
