Sabat's Taking Lessons from Hellmuth?

Maria Ho

Eddy Sabat is well-acquainted with the Commerce Casino. It's where he spends most of his time when he's not winning tournaments on the international poker circuit. He opened a recent pot to 600 from early position. Action folded to Maria Ho in late position, who reraised to 2,000. Sabat was the only caller.

The flop came down {6-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} {J-Diamonds}. Sabat checked to Ho, who quickly fired out a bet that Sabat wanted no part of. He mucked his hand. "No, no!" cried Ho, turning over pocket aces. A good dodge for Sabat.
