Ducks Prevail for Hansen

Phil Ivey opened for 50,000 from early position only to have Gus Hansen move all in from the button for 199,000. Ivey made the call and it was off to the races.

Showdown

Ivey{A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Hansen{2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}

The room was the most excited it has been for an hour, and the railbirds were on their feet as the flop came down {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. Ivey picked up a gut-shot straight draw to go along with his over, but neither the {3-Spades} turn nor {9-Spades} river helped him Hansen survived the hand and doubled to 400K.
