Hellmuth Back In the Lead

Chad_Holloway • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 7,000 ante
Phil Hellmuth

After winning a couple small pots, Phil Hellmuth took Ted Forrest for a big one to reclaim the chip lead.

It began when Hellmuth brought it in with a {6-} and then raised when Forrest completed with a {5-}. Forrest called and then bet fourth. Hellmuth called and then put out a bet of his own when he took the lead on fifth. Forrest raised, Hellmuth called, and it was off to sixth street. Hellmuth maintained the lead and bet, which prompted Forrest to call.

Hellmuth bet on last time on seventh, and it did the trick as Forrest released his hand.

Hellmuth: (x-x) / {6-}{10-}{9-}{8-} / {x-}
Forrest: (x-x) / {5-}{7-}{j-}{7-} / {x-}
