Beauty and the Beast

• Nivel 6


Phil Hellmuth completed with the {Q-Clubs}, and Maria Ho came along heads-up showing the {J-Clubs}.

Hellmuth: (x-x) / {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{4-Hearts} / (x)
Ho: (x-x) / {j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} / (x)

Ho check-called a bet on fourth street, then led out when she paired on fifth. Hellmuth called, and he called another bet on sixth street as well. Both players checked on seventh.

Ho revealed {J-Spades}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades} down, and her three pair were good. She's crossed 10,000 now, while Hellmuth slides back to about 13,000.
