Event #26: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

“Are You Kidding Me?”

• Nível 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
Phil Hellmuth

There was an open for 5,000 and Phil Hellmuth raised it up from the big blind to 14,000 and got a call. Two players to the flop of {6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} which they both checked.

The turn card was the {6-Clubs} and Hellmuth led for 13,000. As his opponent was deciding what to do Hellmuth told him, “Let me have this one. You take the next one.”

The speech was not persuasive enough and the bet was called. The river card was the {k-Hearts} and Hellmuth bet 17,000 saying again, “Let me have this one. You take the next one.”

This time the speech was met by a raise to 40,000 and Hellmuth was out of his chair.

“Are you kidding me?” Hellmuth said accusing his opponent of having {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts} and calling everyone who ever played against him an idiot. He then folded his cards and sat back down muttering.
