The last time Phil Hellmuth tangled with Benjamin Pollak in the blind battle he came out of the encounter with a bloody nose after being forced to lay down the four-bet. Unfortunately, for the big man, he has just tried to have another go at the Frenchman and once again ended up a little worse for wear!
The action folded around to Hellmuth who decided to raise to 4,900 and Benjamin Pollak made the call. The flop of was checked through and we saw the on the turn. Hellmuth made a very confident looking 9,000 bet and Pollak made the call. The river was the and Hellmuth checked to Pollak who bet 18,500 and then the fun started. Hellmuth started talking to himself and was visibly angry. Then he moved from talking to himself to talking to Pollak.
"You wanna mess with me? Well the deck had better save you."
"I knew I was going to get you after the last hand."
"I am 100% going to bust you."
"OK its OK you can show the bluff."
Were the main sentences that came out of Hellmuth;s mouth and landed on my note pad. He folded his hand and Pollak waved the nine-high bluff at Hellmuth and hauled in the pot. Hellmuth started again.
"You called a 9k bet with nine high. This is not poker!"
"You guys play so bad against me. 9K with nine high!"
Then after speaking to himself and then Pollak he decided to speak to anyone else who would listen to him.
"Freddy, Freddy (Deeb) they have got me talking to myself now!"
