Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Hansen Having His Way


Four players saw a flop come {K-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{2-Spades}, and when it checked to Rick Salomon he fired 250,000. Gus Hansen then raised to 555,000 behind him, clearing out the others, and Salomon called. Both then checked down the {A-Diamonds} turn and {K-Diamonds} river.

Salomon tabled {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}, at the sight of which Hansen said "I can beat that" as he showed {A-Spades}{9-Spades} and scooped the pot.

Soon after that one, Hansen was raising from the cutoff to 72,000 and Michael Mizrachi reraised to 201,000 from the button. It folded back to Hansen who called, and the flop came {7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}. Hansen checked, and Mizrachi checked behind. The turn was the {4-Hearts}. This time Hansen bet 202,000, and Mizrachi called.

The river brought the {2-Spades} and a couple of checks. Hansen tabled {6-Clubs}{3-Clubs} for treys and deuces, and Mizrachi folded.
