"Hellmuth Lucky Again"

• Nivel 15: 3,000-6,000, 700 ante
Phil Hellmuth

The title of this post is brought to you by Richard Ashby.

"That's what the title should be," Ashby said with a smile after he lost a crazy hand against Phil Hellmuth.

"You know what the real write-up should be," Hellmuth said, "'Chufty plays 80% of the pots and Hellmuth folds 60% of them and plays patiently.'"

Cyndy Violette chimed in that she wasn't too happy with this table, as Ashby's aggressive style kept her options of playing pots limited.

"Are you kidding me?" Hellmuth said, "I wanna play with Chufty all day! I mean, he might win all my chips, but still," Hellmuth jokingly said.

The atmosphere at this table is friendly and jovial, but the poker action most certainly not.

We just saw Hellmuth bet on fourth street and Ashby called. On fifth street, Hellmuth bet again with a pair of kings showing and Ashby called. Sixth street gave Hellmuth three of a kind showing and when he bet, Ashby open-folded his rolled up eights.

Hellmuth: {X-}{X-} / {K-Spades}{9-Spades}{K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} / {X-}
Ashby: {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} / {8-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{10-Spades} --fold

Hellmuth, with three of a kind showing, smiled and showed the {K-Clubs} as well, as he had collected all the kings in the deck.
