Hellman Turns Up the Heat


Three players saw a flop come {K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. It checked to Alfred Firova who fired 35,000 (about half the pot), and Andrew Lee called. Erik Hellman then raised to 78,000, with Firova folding even before Hellman had fully pushed out the chips. Lee thought a while, then called the raise.

The turn was the {8-Spades}. Hellman led with a bet of 138,000 this time, then Lee raised to 308,000. Hellman leaned forward. Hellman asked Lee what he had left, and Lee answered about 1.3 million.

Hellman then pushed two columns of green chips forward — either reraising all in or to 1 million, we couldn't hear. In either case, Lee said "I can't call" and folded his hand, explaining he had a flush draw. As Hellman stacked the chips, he grinningly asked Lee how big his flush draw was, seeming to imply he had one of his own.
