Going The Wrong Direction

[user38971]
Phil Hellmuth doubled up recently and after only a few hands, his chip stack has begun to dwindle down.

Barny Boatman, Phil Hellmuth, and another player called to see the flop.

Flop: {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Spades}

Boatman led out for 5,000 and Phil called. The {4-Diamonds} fell on the turn and both players checked. The {3-Hearts} peeled off on the river and Boatman made it 8,000 and Phil called. Boatman showed pocket nines and Hellmuth was outraged at the flop, as he held pocket tens. Hellmuth is down to 22,000.
