Hellmuth Eliminated by Andress

• Level 11: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante
Phil Hellmuth

In a hand that occurred on the stream, Dimitry Urbanovich raised to 4,500 from under the gun with {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} and was called by John Andress in the small blind who held {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}. Phil Hellmuth was sitting in the bg blind who three-bet to 13,500 with {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. Urbanovich considered his options for a while and then opted to fold. Andress shoved with the bigger stack and Hellmuth snap-called for the 38,500 he had behind.

The flop came {2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{q-Spades} for Andress to hit the higher pair of queens immediately and Hellmuth shook his head.

The turn brought them the {8-Clubs} which didn't change the situation and Hellmuth got up from his chair already.

The river completed the board with the {k-Diamonds}, Hellmuth shook Andress' hand and wished the rest of the table good luck before leaving the feature table stage while mumbling about the ace-queen call by Andress.
