Raising Hellman


Erik Hellman started Day 3 with a lot of chips, and has seen his stack steadily rise as the afternoon has progressed.

Just now he accumulated a few more chips in a hand in which he and an opponent built a pot of about 17,000 by the turn with the board showing {J-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. At that point Hellman's opponent fired 7,500 and Hellman called.

The river brought the {7-Clubs} and checks from both, and Hellman showed his {A-Hearts}{K-Clubs} first. His opponent then turned over {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}.

"Wow, that's impossible," grinned Hellman, realizing his ace-king was good.
