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

Hansen's Pair Fades Dwan's Draws

• Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

With 32,000 in the pot and the flop reading {9-Spades}{7-Clubs}{J-Clubs}, Tom Dwan bet 24,000 and Hansen shoved all-in. Dwan called for his remaining chips and showed {Q-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for an open-ended straight draw. Hansen flipped over the {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for top pair. Dwan needed to spike an eight, queen or king to take the lead, but the turn of {9-Hearts} was a brick. The river came {A-Hearts} and Hansen survived, forcing Dwan to cash in a 200,000 add-on and attempt yet another comeback.
