Hellmuth Loses Lead, Getting Grumpy Again
For two consecutive hands, Phil Hellmuth has complained about the dealer. It doesn't appear to be the mechanics or the gameflow that he's upset about, but rather the luck he's having with this dealer in the box.
In the most recent hand, Mike Gorodinsky brings in with a , Phil Hellmuth completes with another , and Gorodinsky makes it two bets for 120,000. Hellmuth calls.
Hellmuth bets his lead on fourth street, with Gorodinsky calling the 50,000. That reverses as Gorodinsky bets his new lead on fifth, and Hellmuth calls the 100,000. As soon as the sixth street card hits the table, Hellmuth shoots a glance backward at the floorman.
"You guys have to have the dealers come in on time. You have to follow procedure." Having said his peace, he angrily tucks his cards under and flings them into the muck.
Gorodinsky has retaken the chip lead.
Mike Gorodinsky - 1,700,000
Phil Hellmuth - 1,366,000
