Tournament of Champions

Hansen Staying Active

Gus Hansen opened to 525 with the blinds 100/200/25 and Jamil Dia reraised to 2,525. Everyone folded, including Hansen, and Dia won the pot.

On the next hand, Hansen opened to 575 from under the gun. He was called by Dia in middle position and Peter Costa in the big blind before taking a flop of {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}. Costa checked and Hansen bet 1,200. Dia folded, then Costa followed him into the muck to give Hansen the pot.

On the very next hand, Lee Nelson raised to 550 and Hansen defended with a call from the big blind to see the flop come down {A-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Hansen led for 800 and Nelson made the call.

The turn brought the {2-Spades} and Hansen led for 2,200. Nelson called again before the dealer dealt the {4-Diamonds} on the river. Hansen fired another bet, this time for 5,525. Nelson began to tank and, after a couple of minutes, folded his hand to give Hansen the pot.
