$250,000 Challenge

Phua with a Pair of Aces

[user68268] • Level 6: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

On the button, Gus Hansen raised to 18,000. Paul Phua called from the big blind to see the {A-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} flop, then checked. Hansen bet 18,000, and Phua called.

The turn was the {8-Hearts}, and the river was the {7-Diamonds}. Both Phua and Hansen checked each street before Phua opened the {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts} for a pair of aces. Hansen couldn't beat it and mucked his hand to award Phua the pot.
