Hansen Outkicks Cody, Doubles Through

[user197301] • Level 8: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Another limped pot brought a flop of {5-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{2-Clubs} and a check-call by Cody after Hansen fired 12,000 into the middle. After the turn of {9-Spades}, Cody led out for 29,000 chips and Hansen flashed a wry grin, apparently amused by Cody's unorthodox line in the hand.

The Great Dane elected to raise the action to 106,000 and Cody instantly put his opponent all-in by raising to 256,000. Hansen asked for a count, saying "just for kicks, how much is it?" even though he was aware that the bet forced him all-in.

Hansen then said "I'm probably calling here..." before putting his initial stack at risk and flipping up the {Q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. He found himself ahead of the {Q-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} held by Cody and needed to avoid a seven on the river to avoid losing his initial 800,000 stack.

The dealer revealed the {8-Hearts} on the river and Hansen earned a much needed double-up to regain traction early in this match.
