Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

Hellmuth's Heater Continues

Phil Hellmuth can smell number twelve.

Phil Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {6-}{4-}{k-}{k-} / {x-}
Brendan Taylor: {x-}{x-} / {7-}{4-}{2-}{j-} / {x-}

Taylor completed with a {7-}, Hellmuth called with a {6-}, and both players were dealt a {4-} on fourth. Hellmuth check-called a bet. Taylor led out on fifth, sixth, and seventh, and on seventh, Hellmuth ripped off his glasses.

"I think I'm supposed to raise," Hellmuth announced. "But I just call. I caught a seven."

Hellmuth fanned {a-}{7-}{2-} for a seventy-four, and all we saw from Taylor's hand was {10-}{3-}. Hellmuth pulled in the monster pot, and is starting to pull away.
