Hansen Extends the Break

• Level 8: 6,000-12,000, 1,000 ante

The last hand dealt before the break took about eight minutes or so into the break due to Gus Hansen tanking to a flop shove from Tony Bloom.

Bloom opened preflop to 28,000 and Hansen called on the button. Sorel Mizzi called from the small blind and the flop came down {J-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Hearts}. After Mizzi and Bloom checked, Hansen fired 51,000. Mizzi folded, then Bloom check-raised all in for 254,000. Hansen tanked for a long while, several minutes into break. He was mumbling to himself the entire time and seemed to have a pretty tough decision in front of him. Eventually, Hansen folded and Bloom won the pot.
