Hellmuth Gets Unlucky on River

Phil Hellmuth raises it up to 5,000 from early position, and Kyle Zartman is the lone caller from the big blind. The flop comes down    , and both players knuckle. The turn is the  , and Zartman fires out 7,000.  Hellmuth calls that bet, and the river is the  .  Zartman fires out 16,700 now, and Hellmuth goes into the tank.

He takes a bite of his food, then cuts out the chips for the call. He stacks them together, then sits back and takes another bite. Eventually, he slides the call in. Zartman tables    for running two pair, and the lid gets blown off the Hellmuth steampipe.

"Are you f***ing kidding me?" Hellmuth is in disbelief as he flashes   , meaning that Zartman spiked a three outer on him. "I have him drawing dead and you bail him out. So f***ing sick." Hellmuth continues to shake his head and mumble to himself as the chips are sent to Zartman. 

Phil Hellmuth - 118,000
Kyle Zartman - 75,000
