Yu Gets The Hellmuth Sign of Approval

Ben Yu completed with the {A-Clubs} showing and Jesse Martin called with the {9-Hearts} up. On fourth street Yu caught the {A-Hearts} and Martin folded right when Yu bet.

"I got'em! I got'em! I got'em!" Yu said as he waved his aces in the air while making this shape: /\ with his fingers, reenacting the epic hand between Beth Shak, Phil Hellmuth and Brett Richey during the 2007 WSOP.

"The kid's just dancing, he won three pots in a row," Hellmuth said.

"I was doing the thing Beth Shak did at that final table," Yu responded.

"Dang it, that's just so good! You're so clever," Hellmuth said, as he realized what was going on.

Hellmuth gave Yu a fist bump, as a sign of approval, and a very giddy Yu stacked his newly won chips.
