Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Dwan and Hansen Tangle Early

Paul_Oresteen • Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

As expected the match between Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan got real big, real fast. With a pot around 80,000 by river Dwan moved all in for 136,000 on a board of {8-Hearts} {J-Spades} {6-Spades} {4-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}.

Hansen went into his usual painful looking tank with twitching and grimacing. "It doesn't feel right," he said. "It doesn't make any sense whatsoever."

Hansen called and showed {9-Clubs} {9-Spades} and Dwan kicked his cards into the muck. Dwan cashed in one of his rebuys, leaving one in reserve.
