Event 15: $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split 8-or-Better

Brunson Hassles Hellmuth

Brunson: {x-}{x-} / {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades} / {x-}
Hellmuth: {x-}{x-} / {4-Spades}{4-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} / {x-}
Scott: {x-}{x-} / {4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts} / {x-}

Drew Scott bet on fourth street and was called by Todd Brunson and Phil Hellmuth. Hellmuth opted to seize control of the hand and bet out on both fifth and sixth. Much to Hellmuth's chagrin, both Scott and Brunson decided to stick around.

All three players checked seventh and Hellmuth showed {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{7-Spades}. Scott mucked his hand and Hellmuth stood up with excitement, hoping that he would be able to scoop this rather large pot. Brunson, however, had other ideas in mind, as he tabled {6-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for trip treys. Brunson's winning of the pot sent Hellmuth walking away from the table, muttering obscenities under his breath.
