Hellmuth Has a Set


Joseph Cheong had the button. Phil Hellmuth raised to 80,000 and it was a family pot going to the flop of {8-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. Two checks to Phil Hellmuth and he fired 180,000. Joseph Cheong and Stephane Albertini gold and Sergii Baranov called.

The {2-Clubs} turned and both players checked, prompting the {Q-Spades} to complete the board. Baranov checked a third time and Hellmuth bet 200,000. Baranov threw out a call.

"I flopped a set," said Hellmuth. He tabled {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Baranov mucked.
