Hellmuth Climbs The Counts

MartyDerby • Level 20: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Dan Shak made it 150,000 and Phil Hellmuth called in position. The flop came {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} and Shak continued for 200,000.

Hellmuth almost beat him to the pot pushing all in for 775,000 more and Shak made the call.

It was Hellmuth on the {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} and Shak holding the {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}. The turn came the {k-Hearts}, giving Hellmuth a set, but Shak still had four outs to a straight. The {4-Spades} river wasn't one of them, however, and as Hellmuth suddenly moved into second on the leader board, Shak fell near the bottom.
