Hellmuth Explodes With an Outburst Against Klein

Level 23


Phil Hellmuth: {4-}{2-} / {3-}{10-}{3-}{a-} / {k-}
Jesse Klein: {a-}{9-}{7-} / {2-}{k-}{8-}{10-}

Phil Hellmuth limped in and then called when Jesse Klein completed. On fourth, Hellmuth bet and earned a call, Klein then bet fifth and check-called sixth. Klein checked in the dark on seventh street and Hellmuth checked behind to expose a busted wheel draw, ending up with a ten instead. Klein had a ninety-seven and won the pot.

What followed was an explosion of Hellmuth who walked away from the table with plenty of swear words to be heard. Klein could all but smirk when dragging in the bigger pot.
