Hands #53-57: Hellmuth Gets It All In

[user153638] • Nivo 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Hand #53: Yu Kurita opened for 11,000 under the gun, Phil Hellmuth called from the button, and Michael Tran called from the big to make it three-way action to the {2-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop. Two checks saw Hellmuth bet 8,000, Tran called, and Kurita got out of the way.

Both players then checked the {3-Hearts} turn as well as the {10-Spades} river.

"Pair of fours," Hellmuth said.

"Unlucky," Tran offered and then tabled his {a-Hearts}{10-Hearts} for a rivered pair of tens. A distraught Hellmuth put both his hands to his head in disbelief.

Hand #54: Alexander Antonios raised to 11,500 from the button and won the pot.

Hand #55: Antonios raised to 11,500 from the hijack, Tran called from the button, and it was heads-up action to the {a-Clubs}{6-Spades}{j-Spades} flop. Antonios continued for 13,500, Tran called, and the dealer burned and turned the {3-Clubs}. Antonios checked, Tran bet 22,000, and Antonios check-raised to 83,000. Tran folded.

Hand #56: Steven Zhou raised to 12,500 from the small blind only to have Hellmuth three-bet to 22,000 from the big blind. Zhou moved all in and Hellmuth, who only had 12,000 behind, called off.

Hellmuth: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}
Zhou: {a-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Hellmuth woke up with aces at just the right time, and he scored the double after the board ran out a dry {10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

Hand #57: Zhou raised to 10,000 from the button and won the pot.
