When we arrived at the table, Phil Hellmuth and Alessandro Meoni had all the money in on the flop. Hellmuth had the for a combo draw against the for Meoni. The turn was the and the river was the to give Meoni the double up.
Roberto Romanello seemed a little confused with what had happened and asked Yannick Bonnet what happened preflop. Bonnet informed him that there was a raise from Meoni, a call from Hellmuth and then Bonnet three-bet. Romanello took this information and asked Hellmuth what he was doing in a big pot on the flop after calling a three-bet preflop with ace-three of spades.
Hellmuth didn't like that Romanello was getting on his case a bit after losing. "They always come after you after you lose a pot," he said out loud. "You're a real classy guy, real classy."
"I was just wondering what you're doing in that pot after it was three-bet preflop to 7,500 and you had ace-three of spades," needled Romanello.
"You're a real classy guy," was all Hellmuth could add as he slipped his headphones back on and went to the next hand.
