Hansen Plays it Safe

[user140525] • Level 11


Thor Hansen: (X)(X) / {3-Hearts}{4-Spades}{8-Spades}{2-Spades} / (X)
Michael Binger: (X)(X) / {7-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} / (X)

Michael Binger checked seventh, and Thor Hansen was about to bet but changed his mind and checked behind. Hansen started with {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and caught the {5-Spades} to make fives up and an eight-five low. That was good enough to scoop Binger's {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}, which never turned into more than a pair of sixes and a losing low.

Hansen's scoop put him up to 38,000, leaving Binger with around 70,000. "Let me know the next time you have that big a hand," Binger told him. "Never raised, never nothing."
