The Dane Gets Durrrr'ed on the River

[user197301] • Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante
Tom "Durrrr" Dwan

With 17,000 already in the pot and the flop reading {Q-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{9-Spades}, Tom Dwan bet 13,000 and Gus Hansen made the call. The turn brought the {5-Hearts} and Dwan led out again, this time for 23,000. After two minutes of study, in which Hansen asked Durrrr for a chip count while mentally tabulating his next move, Hansen grabed a handful of pink 5,000 chips and raised to 100,000. Dwan instantly made the call and flipped up {K-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}, but found himself trailing the two pair of Hansen, who held {3-Spades}{5-Clubs}. The rail gasped slightly when the dealer turned over the {K-Hearts} on the river, giving Dwan top set and the sizable pot.
