Event 8: $100,000 Challenge

Hansen Can't Get There

Gus Hansen raised to 22,000 from the button before Tony Bloom reraised the pot. Hansen then reraised the pot and Bloom snapped all in.

Bloom: {A-Hearts} {K-Hearts}
Hansen: {A-Spades} {K-Spades}

"I don't ask for much in life, but I would like one spade on the flop," said Hansen.

The flop came down {A-Diamonds} {J-Spades} {6-Hearts} and Hansen got his wish for one spade. There was also a heart on board.

The turn card added the {8-Spades} to the board and put a big smile from ear to ear on Hansen's face.

The river card was a black one, but it was also a king, meaning it could only be the {K-Clubs}. The two players chopped up the pot.
