You're more likely to find Gus Hansen and Ben "bttech86" Tollerene playing at the same table on the virtual felt, but today's tournament was special as the two online legends squared off in the live realm right here at the World Series of Poker.

According to Jason Koon, the dynamic duo recently went up against one another that saw one of them hit the rail. It began when Tollerene opened for 7,500 under the gun and two players flatted. Hansen then three-bet to 34,500 from the small blind, Tollerene four-bet to 90,000, the two limpers folded and the "Great Dane" made the call.

After the flop fell {10-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, Hansen checked and Tollerene bet 80,000. Hansen tanked for five minutes before calling and saying, "I'm sorry."

Hansen then checked the {k-Hearts} turn and snap-called when Tollerene moved all in. Hansen tabled the {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} for a flopped set, and Tollerene was drawing dead with the {a-Spades}{k-Spades}. The meaningless river was run out and Tollerene was bounced from the tournament.
