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

Dwan Turns the Tables

• Taso 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Gus Hansen has been dragging most of the pots since his match with Tom Dwan began, but "Durrrr" is starting to make a run at this thing.

A couple hands ago, we walked up to the turn on a board showing {J-Clubs} {Q-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {6-Spades}. Dwan led out with 28,000, and Hansen called. On the {3-Hearts} river, Dwan bet another 83,000, and Hansen again called to see the cards. Dwan tabled {6-Hearts} {3-Spades}, and Hansen chuckled at the sight of his opponent's running two pair.

Just a moment later, an even bigger pot broke out suddenly. On a {6-Clubs} {7-Spades} {2-Clubs} flop, Hansen bet 30,000 before Dwan raised to 84,000. Hansen called, and the {3-Hearts} dropped on fourth street. Hansen had about 220,000 chips left in his stack, and Dwan bet 145,000 to commit him. Hansen spent a long, long while in the think tank before sticking his stack in there, and Dwan quickly called with {Q-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds}. Hansen's {10-Spades} {7-Hearts} was dead to three outs, and the river {5-Spades} has swung this match in Dwan's favor.

Hansen still has 400,000 worth of second-chance chips, but it's now Dwan holding a 2:1 lead in the contest.
