Hellmuth's Aces Hold Up Against 6 Callers

Four players had limped into the pot before the action got around to a player in the small blind (SB) who put in a raise. Phil Hellmuth called from the big blind (BB) as did the four original callers, creating a 6-way pot going into the flop.

The first three cards off the deck were {A-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and all six players knuckled the table, opting for a free turn.

The {10-Diamonds} was the next card to fall and this time, Phil led out with a bet. He was called by Dutch Boyd and one other player in late position.

The {9-Spades} fell on the river and Phil led the betting again. Dutch folded and the late position player called Phil down. Phil revealed the {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} for top set, and his opponent mucked his cards.

The hand boosted Phil past the 10k mark on the day.
