Racener Doubles Through Hellmuth In Dramatic Fashion

Racener: {X-}{X-}/{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}
Rodawig: {X-}{X-}/{5-Clubs}{J-Diamonds} - folded
Hellmuth: {X-}{X-}/{K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}

John Racener defended his bring in after Eric Rodawig's completion and Phil Hellmuth's call.

On fourth street, Racener bet his pair and Rodawig folded. Hellmuth snap-raised and Racener responded, "Well I love this spot!"

He turned over {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs} to Hellmuth's {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

Here are the boards through sixth street:

Racener: {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}/{4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}/{K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

Hellmuth peeled the {7-Hearts}, making a flush.

"I want you to admit you sucked out," said Racener with a grin on his face.

"He hasn't yet," said Eric Rodawig.

There would be no suckout for Hellmuth, as Racener turned over the {A-Spades} to fill up and remain in the tournament.
