Event #40: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed

Bluffing Hellmuth (Hilarity Ensues)

Shamus • Level 8: 250-500, 50 ante

The board showed {2-Spades}{4-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. There was 18,000 in the middle. A short-stacked player in the big blind shoved all in for 9,975, prompting a fold from his neighbor sitting to his left. That just left Phil Hellmuth on the button, who brooded a bit before folding his {A-}{4-} face up.

The player in the big blind couldn't resist the opportunity, turning over his {5-}{3-}. Hellmuth looked over at his opponent's hand, smiled graciously, and complimented him for an inspired and well-timed bit of trickery.

Okay, perhaps it went a little differently there at the end. We'll let you elaborate on the theme yourself, delivered to us here by our intrepid reporter thusly: "Phil gives him crap for the bluff."

Hellmuth now has about 45,000.
