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

Hansen Battles Back With Successive Double-Ups

• Level 11: 10,000-20,000, 0 ante

Down to his last 120,000 chips, Gus Hansen got all of them in the middle holding {Q-Spades}{J-Spades} against the {A-Spades}{6-Spades} of Tom Dwan. The flop brought the {J-}{K-}{6-} and Hansen took the lead with a pair of jacks. A second {J-} on the turn sealed the hand for the Great Dane, and after another double-up on the very next deal, Hansen had rebuilt his stack to over 500,000.
