Phil Hellmuth opened to 1,800 from middle position, and the cutoff called. The button three-bet to 3,700, and Hellmuth called, as did the cutoff.
Hellmuth decided to lead out on the flop, betting 5,000. The cutoff folded, while the button began thinking.
"I'll take this one, you take the next one," Hellmuth said.
His opponent finally folded face-up, and Hellmuth quickly mucked his cards.
