Hanson Knocks One Out in a Roller Coaster Hand

BrandonTemple • Level 13: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Michael Hanson jammed for 27,500 from middle position, and the button called off his last 26,000.

"Hope I picked a good spot!" Hanson said.

Michael Hanson: {k-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Opponent: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

Hanson had indeed picked a decent spot, as he was ahead with king-high. Hanson's spirits dimmed after the {8-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} flop delivered his opponent a straight, leaving Hanson looking for a diamond (but not the queen of diamonds) to avoid being left with 1,500 in chips. The {6-Spades} turn was a brick, but Hanson found the {3-Diamonds} on the river to earn the knockout.
