Hellmuth Can't Beat Baranov

Fourth street was the {7-Clubs} and Baranov bet 285,000. Hellmuth snapped him off once again and the {Q-Clubs} fell on the river. Sergii dropped five t100,000 plaques into the middle for 500,000.

"Call!" yelled Hellmuth.

Baranov showed {K-Clubs}{5-Clubs} for a flush.

"Dah!" continued Hellmuth. "How much this time!?

Hellmuth showed {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} for the same straight that Baranov turned.

"There! You want to see? I had a straight!" said Hellmuth. "What is going on!?"

Hellmuth has now fallen to 2.815 million in chips while Baranov has extended his chip lead.
