Early Double for Hansen

Yardley • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Full Tilt Poker Professional Gus Hansen paid his €100,000 entry fee and sat down with 40 big blinds. On the third hand his table had played he opened under-the-gun for 16,000. PokerStars Team Online player Isaac Haxton was in the Hijack and he stared Hansen down for a while before making it 44,000. The other players folded and Hansen bounced around in his seat before making the call.

The flop was {9-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. Hansen spread his chips on the felt in front of him and picked out a bet of 46,000. Haxton went in the tank and took a couple of minutes to make his decision, When he reached it he announced, “All in.”

Hansen put his chips across the line to call.

Haxton tabled {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds} but Hanen had out flopped him with a {q-Spades}{j-Clubs} straight.

“I think it’s nice.” said Hansen and it remained nice as turn {8-Spades} river {3-Spades} put a dent in Haxton’s stack and doubled up the great Dane.
