Alexander Krapivinsky{x-}{x-} / {5-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{8-Spades} / {x-}
Phil Hellmuth{x-}{x-} / {2-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{6-Hearts} / {x-}

Hellmuth brought it in with the {2-Clubs} showing, Martin completed with the {6-Clubs}, and Krapivinsky called. Hellmuth put in another raise, Martin reraised, and Krapivinsky called again. Hellmuth called as well.

The action checked the Hellmuth on fourth, and he tossed out a bet. Both Martin and Krapivinsky called. Hellmuth made a pair on fifth and led out, and this time only Krapivinsky called. Hellmuth led again on sixth, and Krapivinsky again called.

When Hellmuth led out on seventh however, Krapivinsky immediately raised. Hellmuth called.

"Straight," Krapivinsky announced, tabling {7-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs}.

"GOD DAMMIT!" Hellmuth shouted, knocking his chair over. He muttered a few more adult words under his breath while Krapivinsky was scooping the pot, but we couldn't hear exactly what he was saying.

Adam Friedman, who's been needling Hellmuth for the better part of two days, tried to explain that, with a low, Krapivinsky was free rolling in sixth street. Hellmuth would hear none of it.

"Well played," Friedman announced loudly.

Krapivinsky could only smile.
