Hand #123

Brian Rast had the button. Minh Ly raised to 225,000 from first position, Rast called on the button, and Phil Hellmuth three-bet to 525,000 from the small blind. Owais Ahmed released his big blind, Ly folded as well, and Rast made the call.

The flop came down {3-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, and Hellmuth knuckled. Rast fired 250,000, and Hellmuth called.

The turn was the {k-Diamonds}, and Hellmuth immediately checked. Rast reached for chips, and slid out 675,000.

"How much?" Hellmuth asked Rast, pointing to the remainder of his stack.

"Almost two million," Rast answered.

"You have a set?" Hellmuth asked.

Hellmuth called, checked dark, and the river was the {10-Spades}. Rast made it 1.36 million, sending Hellmuth deep into the tank.

"Set, huh?" Hellmuth asked again.

Hellmuth began assembling chips to make the call, but then he grabbed his cards and flashed the {k-Clubs} before folding.
