Hansen's Rivers a Pair of Aces Against Smirnov

Gus Hansen

Daniel Alaei opened with a raise to 5,000 from middle position and both the blinds made the call; Mikhail Smirnov from the small blind and Gus Hansen from the big blind.

The flop came down {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and Smirnov checked. Hansen fired 10,500 and Alaei folded. Smirnov called.

The turn produced the {K-Hearts} and both players checked to see the {A-Hearts} land on the river. After Smirnov checked, Hansen bet 22,000. Smirnov made the call.

Hansen tabled the {A-Spades}{7-Spades} and Smirnov mucked his hand.
