Hellmuth Has a Four

Phill Hellmuth

After Alessandro Meoni raised to 2,500 on the button, action folded to Phil Hellmuth in the big blind.

"I'm going to raise you to 6,000," said Hellmuth, tossing in the chips to do so. Meoni called to see a flop.

The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds} and Hellmuth led for 7,000. Meoni called and the dealer placed the {8-Hearts} on the turn. Both players checked.

The river was the {4-Diamonds} and Hellmuth took a minute to squeeze his cards. He then checked. Meoni reached for chips right away and get 8,800.

"How much? Eight-eight?" Hellmuth asked. He then tossed in the call.

Meoni turned up the {K-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a busted straight draw.

"King-ten high?" quipped Hellmuth. "I have a four," he continued as he turned up the {4-Spades}{3-Spades}.

Hellmuth won the pot with his two pair and moved to 85,000 in chips.
