$100,000 Challenge

Hansen Under 200K; Smirnov Over One Million

On the first hand back from the break, Gus Hansen raised from the button to 22,000. The chip leader Mikhail Smirnov called from the small blind and the flop came down {K-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. Smirnov checked and Hansen checked.

The turn was the {7-Diamonds} and Smirnov bet 25,000. Hanse made the call to see the {10-Diamonds} land on the river. After Smirnov checked, Hansen fired 51,000. Smirnov called.

"You got it," said Hansen. "I have a jack."

Hansen meant he had jack high and then Smirnov tabled the {J-Hearts}{10-Clubs} for a pair of tens. Smirnov won the pot and Hansen dropped to under 200,000 in chips.
