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

Hansen Still Pressing

[user66118] • Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante
Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen has adopted a very button-limpy style. In fact, we haven't seen him raise the button once in two days. We pick up another pot as he limped in for the minimum, and Tom Dwan knocked the table for a free flop.

It came {7-Clubs} {8-Spades} {A-Clubs}, and Dwan made a bet of what looked like 8,000. Hansen quickly raised it up to 20,000, and Dwan studied his opponent for a bit before making the call. The {A-Hearts} paired the board on the turn, and Dwan check-called another 40,000 from Hansen.

That led them to the {6-Hearts} river, and Dwan checked again.

"All right," Hansen said. "It's time to see what I actually have." He squeezed his cards, then checked behind.

"I have jack-high," Dwan announced.

"I have an eight," Hansen answered, tabling his {Q-Spades} {8-Clubs} to take the pot. Dwan continues to slide here in this match, down to 170,000 (plus one more 200,000-chip bullet). That gives Hansen the other 830,000 chips in the duel.
