Big First Hand Back Between Hellmuth and Banjour


On the first hand after the break, Frederic Banjout asked the dealer what the blinds were and then raised to 350,000. Action folded to Phil Hellmuth in the big blind and he verified the raise was to 350,000 before announcing a reraise.

"2.2 million," said Hellmuth before sliding out the chips. Banjout called right away and the flop came down {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}{8-Spades}.

Hellmuth and Banjout quickly checked the flop and then the turn brought the {4-Clubs}. "One million," said Hellmuth and Banjout called straight away.

The river was the {K-Spades} and Hellmuth checked. Banjout thought for a minute while shuffling his cards back and forth. He then checked behind and showed the {Q-Spades}{Q-Clubs}. Hellmuth mucked and Banjout won the pot.
