Hellmuth Doubles Through Rodawig

[user139916] • Level 24: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Racener: {X-}{X-}/{4-Hearts} - folded
Rodawig: {3-Hearts}{5-Spades}/{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{3-Spades}{7-Diamonds}/{X-}
Hellmuth: {2-Diamonds}{4-Spades}/{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs}/{X-}

John Racener was the bring in. Eric Rodawig completed and Phil Hellmuth called. John Racener ducked out of the way.

Hellmuth check-called on fourth street and when Rodawig took the on-board lead on fifth street, he bet. Hellmuth called, setting up the drama and crazyness on sixth. Hellmuth paired up and led out with a bet, Rodawig raised, and Hellmuth got his chips in as quickly as he could.

There was a good amount of confusion at the table, especially with Rodawig, on how the action reached that point and what still needed to be put into the pot. After about a minute of running through it, it was figured out and Hellmuth turned over his full house. Rodawig was none too pleased, turning over a worse full house.

Both players caught queens on seventh, securing the double for Hellmuth.

Hellmuth - 830,000
Rodawig - 1,590,000

Ted Forrest

Phil Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{K-Spades} / {x-}
Ted Forrest: {x-}{x-} / {A-Clubs}{7-Spades}{10-Clubs}{J-Spades} / {x-}
David Benyamine: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} / {x-}

Phil Hellmuth completed, Ted Forrest made it two bets, David Benyamine and Hellmuth called. Fourth and fifth street was checked around before Hellmuth bet open kings on sixth, Forrest and Benyamine both called.

On seventh Hellmuth checked, Forrest bet and Benyamine folded, Hellmuth made the call but was seemingly shocked that Forrest turned over {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{J-Clubs} for a flush to scoop.

Hellmuth and Forrest Survive Through Rodawig

[user139916] • Level 24: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Hellmuth: {A-}{7-}/{5-Clubs}{J-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}/{10-}
Forrest: {X-}{X-}/{6-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{10-Clubs}/{X-}
Rodawig: {6-Hearts}{3-Spades}/{6-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}/{K-Clubs}

Picking up the action on fourth street, action was checked to Phil Hellmuth and he bet. Both opponents called him and on fifth street is when the pot really took off. Forrest bet his pair of queens, Rodawig raised, and Hellmuth re-raised all in. Forrest and Rodawig called and once sixth street came down, Forrest was all in as well.

In the end, Forrest's pair of queens held on for high, while Hellmuth's 7-5 low was best to keep both players alive.

Chip counts coming shortly...

Hellmuth was in for the rest of his chips on fifth with the other two players both calling. Rodawig then check-folded to Benyamine on sixth, the Frenchman showed {7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} for a straight draw against Hellmuth's kings up but the former missed and they chopped the pot.
