Hellmuth Tackled by Flack

Level 14 : 800/1,600, 1,600 ante

Pot-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw

Layne Flack made it 3,000 on the button, Ray Henson flatted in the small blind, and Phil Hellmuth moved all his chips forward. He had around 27,000 so it was technically only a pot-sized raise, but Flack repotted to force a fold from Henson, and Hellmuth called off.

On the first draw, Hellmuth drew two and Flack one.

Flack had a made hand and patted after Hellmuth had peeled two again.

Hellmuth squeezed one on the final draw and Flack opened {9-}{8-}{7-}{6-}{2-}. Hellmuth showed {7-}{5-}{3-}{2-} for plenty of outs but he turned up an {a-}.

"You donkey motherf****r," Hellmuth ranted. "I bet you think you played your hand good," he added before storming out of the room.
