Hellmuth Takes a Big Pot From Cheong


Joseph Cheong raised to 110,000 under the gun and Phil Hellmuth defended from the big blind. The {7-Spades}{6-Hearts}{7-Hearts} flop saw Hellmuth lead out for 175,000 and Cheong called. The same action happened on the {4-Clubs} turn, but this time Hellmuth's bet was 200,000.

When the {K-Spades} peeled off on the river, Hellmuth came out with a big bet of 600,000 and Cheong made a quick call. Hellmuth quickly rolled over {4-Spades}{4-Hearts} for a full house and the win.
