Caesars Cup

Hellmuth Defeats Lykov to Give America the Win

[user68268] • Nivå 11: 3,000-6,000, 0 ante

Phil Hellmuth limped in from the button and Max Lykov raised all in. Hellmuth snap-called and stood up immediately. He said, "I was trapping!" and tabled the {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}. Lykov had the {K-Clubs}{9-Clubs}.

The flop came down {Q-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Diamonds} and Team America took the lead. The turn was the {6-Diamonds} and the river the {2-Spades}. Team America's pair of queens was the winning hand and it earned them their third point. With that point, they clinched the match and won the 2011 Caesars Cup.
