Event #16: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship

Hellmuth Triples Up

Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth was down to his last 10,000 and got them all in pre-flop from the cutoff. Big blind Casey McCarrel called, as did original raiser Scott Tuttle from the cutoff.

McCarrel and Tuttle built a side pot on the {j-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{8-Spades}, with McCarrel check-calling a bet. On the {8-Diamonds} turn, McCarrel took the lead with a bet and Tuttle folded.

"Ace-jack," Hellmuth said as he turned over {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for top pair. McCarrel had {j-Spades}{2-Spades} for the same pair but worse kicker. The river came the {10-Spades} and Hellmuth tripled up, while McCarrel took the side pot.
