Phil Hellmuth’s woes when it comes to televised cash games are well documented, with a series of high profile losses and blow ups having been broadcast to the world. This has always been an oddity in his career however, especially when you consider his unrivalled success at the tournament tables and record haul of WSOP bracelets. Finally, this week, Hellmuth has found an upswing at the televised cash tables, banking $300,000 and a fantastic session on Poker After Dark.
During the two sessions that Hellmuth walked away from with profit, a crucial hand came up against Jean Robert Bellande, in which Hellmuth held pocket aces, and JRB somehow levelled himself into getting everything in with AJ. Hellmuth held up, and he was well on his way to a huge winning session.
