Hellmuth In, Hellmuth Out
Pot-Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw
Phil Hellmuth just recently entered the tournament, and now he's gone. We caught Robert Mizrachi scooping up Hellmuth's chips so we asked him what happened.
Mizrachi said that he limped in from the small blind and Hellmuth checked from the big blind. Both players drew three and Mizrachi bet and Hellmuth called.
Mizrachi then drew two and Hellmuth took one. Mizrachi said he was holding and made a wheel. He checked to Hellmuth. Hellmuth bet 1,500 and Mizrachi made it 3,000. Hellmuth called.
Mizrachi stood pat and Hellmuth threw away one card, revealing a . Mizrachi checked. Hellmuth bet 4,900, leaving himself with 3,100 behind. Mizrachi then check-raised Hellmuth all in. Hellmuth thought about it for a long time according to David "ODB" Baker and Mizrachi, but eventually decided to call, not wanting to be left with a short stack. Mizrachi turned over his wheel and Hellmuth had for the number four.
That would do it for Hellmuth who lasted less than a level in this tournament.
"He doesn't really dodge bullets that well," Mizrachi said after the hand. "I can't believe he was thinking about folding."
