A Few More For Gus


Gus Hansen opened another pot to 22,000, and this time Mikhail Smirnov three-bet him to 44,000 — the second or third time this level he's three-bet a Hansen raise. When the table folded back around to Hansen, he spent some time deliberating with a sour look on his face before splashing the chips into the pot with a shrug.

Off they went to a {K-Spades} {2-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {10-Spades} {9-Spades} board, checking it down all the way.

"Pair," Hansen announced, and Smirnov let out a noise of disapproval. The {5-Hearts} {5-Spades} appeared on Hansen's side of the felt, and that's good enough to send him another pot.

The Great Dane is clawing back into this five-handed grind, back up to about 300,000 now. Don't worry about Smirnov; he's still got too many chips to count.
