Hellmuth Plays Like a Wimp


"I played it like a wimp," Phil Hellmuth just said after staying alive in a three way showdown. We didn't get any of the action but the hands were spread out as following with {4-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{8-Clubs} on the board.

Opponent 1{A-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades}
Opponent 2{A-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{4-Hearts}

Hellmuth had the nut straight and was up against two players with the nut low. The 11 time WSOP champ is still one of the short stacks but chopping this important pot up gave him some breathing room.
