Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz

Hellmuth Takes the Chip Lead

Phil Hellmuth completed with a {5-} and then called a raise from Brendan Taylor. Hellmuth called another bet on the turn before taking the lead on fifth and betting out. This time it was Taylor who did the calling, which he would repeat on both sixth and seventh streets.

"Nine," Hellmuth said to signify a nine-low. Taylor didn't look too surprised as he folded his hand.

Taylor: (x-x) / {6-}{J-}{6-}{9-} / (x)
Hellmuth: (x-x) / {5-}{Q-}{7-}{8-} / (x) ({9-}{7-}{4-})
