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 board, checking it down all the way.
"Pair," Hansen announced, and Smirnov let out a noise of disapproval. The 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.
