Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Straight For Hellmuth


Jospeh Cheong was first to act and raised to 90,000. It folded around to Phil Hellmuth who called from the big blind.

The dealer produced {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} and both players checked. The {9-Clubs} hit the turn and the duo checked once more.

The board finished with the {7-Spades} and Hellmuth checked. Cheong fired 100,000 and Hellmuth picked up four t100,000 plaques and threw them into the middle for a raise to 400,000. Cheong called.

"Straight," said Hellmuth, showing {K-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Cheong mucked and Hellmuth took the pot.
