Hellmuth Starts off With a Win

[user20283]

One of the superstars that's still gunning for the first WSOPE bracelet of 2011, Phil Hellmuth, started the second day off with a win. The board read {4-Spades}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} when Hellmuth checked from the small blind and his opponent, Dennis Bejedal, checked his option on the button.

The river was the {7-Diamonds} and with around 12,000 chips in the middle Hellmuth announced a 7,500 bet. Very smooth the 11-time bracelet winner threw out the chips, after giving it some though Bejedal folded. Hellmuth is up to 41,000 while Bejedal is getting short, he's got 24,000 left.

Chips Count
Phil Hellmuth us 41,000 12,550
Dennis Bejedal 24,000 -6,325
