Sylvia Doubles Through Hansen

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 1,000 ante

Three players were still in the hand on a board reading {j-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}. The big blind checked and Gus Hansen bet 7,500 from middle position into a pot of around 11,000.

Jesse Sylvia raised to 18,500 on Hansen's left and the big blind was left shaking his head as his cards headed for the muck. Hansen went into the tank for a couple of minutes before announcing all in and Sylvia quickly called off another 30,800.

Jesse Sylvia: {8-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Gus Hansen: {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}

Sylvia just needed to dodge another ace to score a double up and the {9-Clubs} on the river proved to be good enough. Hansen sent his chips to the left and fell back below the 100,000 mark.
