Event #2: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Third Time Isn't a Charm

• Taso 10: 8,000-16,000, 0 ante

Daniel Alaei and Gus Hansen had a seesaw battle much of the afternoon. Hansen was low early, but worked his way back to a small chip advantage. Three times in a row Alaei moved all in preflop and twice Hansen didn't call. But the the third time Aleai was on the button and shoved for 236,000.

Hansen called and tabled {K-Hearts} {6-Hearts} and Alaei held {J-Hearts} {8-Spades}. The board ran {4-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {K-Spades} and Alaei's day was done.
