Hellmuth Doubles Through Hoang

[user339870] • Nível 14: 1,200-2,400, 0 ante
Phil Hellmuth

Brendan Taylor raised to 5,500 from the cutoff, Kate Hoang called from the button, Matthew Honig called from the small blind, and Phil Hellmuth called from the big blind.

The four players saw a flop of {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{5-Spades} and Honig checked. Hellmuth bet the pot for 22,000, Taylor folded, and Hoang raised the pot. Honig folded and Hellmuth called to put himself at risk for 30,300.

Kate Hoang: {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}{J-Spades}{9-Hearts}
Phil Hellmuth: {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}

Both players had flopped trip jacks but Hoang had the best of it with the superior kicker and Hellmuth needed help from the deck to survive. The {7-Spades} hit the turn to give Hellmuth the lead with jacks full of sevens and after the {3-Clubs} fell on the river he took the pot to double up.
