Happy_Freaked • Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

On fifth street three players were involved in a hand and the action was on Sergii Baranov with the high board showing. The Ukrainian checked, Phil Hellmuth checked behind, and Richard Ashby bet with three clubs on board. Both Baranov and Hellmuth called, then on sixth Ashby hit a pair of jacks. Ashby bet, Baranov folded, and Hellmuth called.

On seventh street both players checked.

Hellmuth: {X-}{X-} / {3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} / {X-}
Ashby: {X-}{X-} / {5-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{J-Spades} / {X-}
Baranov: {X-}{X-} / {3-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} / {X-}

"Two pair," Hellmuth announced, and Ashby tapped the table.

Hellmuth showed {A-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Hearts} for his hole cards and he raked in this pot.
