Hand #87: Shawn Buchanan Verbally Scares Phil Hellmuth Out of a Pot
Level 24: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
Hand #87 - David Benyamine raises from early position to 130,000, Shawn Buchanan reraises from middle position to 470,000, and Phil Hellmuth stops to think from the cutoff. Buchanan says, "Play good, Phil," and Hellmuth folds. Benyamine folds as well, and Buchanan collects the pot.
Hellmuth says, "I was reraising. I had a big hand."
For the next few minutes, Hellmuth and Buchanan talk about the hand, and whether or not Buchanan really had the goods. Buchanan insists tha the did, while Hellmuth thinks he is lying. We'll never know, because the holecams don't come into play until the final six players take their seats at the televised WPT Final Table.
