"Crazy Frenchman is Going to Cost Me My 14th Bracelet"

Chad_Holloway • Level 24: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

After Phil Hellmuth raised from the hijack and Davidi Kitai called from the cutoff, the flop came down {k-Spades}{2-Clubs}{3-Hearts} and things got interesting. Hellmuth checked, Kitai bet 48,000, and Hellmuth quickly check-raised to 100,000. Kitai pushed back with a three-bet to 155,000, and Hellmuth shot out of his chair in disbelief.

"Crazy Frenchman is going to cost me my 14th bracelet," Hellmuth said before folding. "You have no chance to win sir."

Someone at the table then asked Kitai if he had ever won a tournament, knowing full well he was a Triple Crown winner. Hellmuth was oblivious to that fact though as he interrupted, "Of course he's never won a tournament before."
