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

Scott Norwood

Chamath Palihapitiya claims to be out-kicked by Gus Hansen.

When we reached Table 411, Chamath Palihapitiya and Gus Hansen were heads up with the board reading {3-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}. Palihapitiya bet 150,000, and Hansen called.

The turn was the {7-Clubs}, and Palihapitiya led again - this time for 275,000. Hansen called.

The {q-Spades} completed the board, and Palihapitiya fired one last bullet worth 300,000. Hansen tanked for a bet before raising to 990,000, and Palihapitiya quickly called. Hansen tabled {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs} for trip queens.

"Wow," Palihapitiya exclaimed. "What a terrible f***ing kicker. You got me notched. Nice hand, Gus."

Palihapitiya mucked, and Hansen pulled in the pot.
