Hellmuth Eliminated by Alexander

Phil Hellmuth

No-Limit Hold'em

There were four players involved to the {j-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Spades} flop and Phil Hellmuth bet 26,000 in the cutoff. Ryan Leng folded on the button and Adam Friedman did so in the small blind. George Alexander check-called out of the big blind and then checked the {4-Diamonds} on the turn.

Hellmuth bet 41,000 out of a total stack of around 175,000 and Alexander then check-raised to give Hellmuth the option to fold or call all-in. Once Hellmuth called, Alexander said "you are not going to like this one" as he flipped over the {6-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a gutshot that had filled up.

Hellmuth still had outs with the {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} but missed on a blank {k-Spades} river. He vaulted out of his seat, gave a short speech and then stormed out of the tournament area.
