Phil Hellmuth

Hand #58: Phil Hellmuth shoved for 1,705,000 from the button and was called by Alan Sternberg in the small blind. Steven Wolansky quickly folded.

Phil Hellmuth: {A-Spades}{5-Diamonds}
Alan Sternberg: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}

The flop came {4-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{3-Hearts} to give Hellmuth a pair of aces. Hellmuth just needed to avoid a king. The {5-Clubs} came on the turn. The river completed the board with the {q-Diamonds} to not provide any danger to Hellmuth and he doubled up.

Hand #59: Sternberg raised to 350,000 from the button and Hellmuth called in the big blind. The flop came {k-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}. Hellmuth check-shoved all-in on the 300,000 bet of Sternberg. Sternberg knocked the felt and folded.

Hand #60: Wolansky raised to 340,000 from the button and got no action.

Hand #61: Wolansky got a walk.

Hand #62: Sternberg shoved on the button for 2,260,000 and got no callers.
