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

Cody Turning the Screws

• Level 8: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Jake Cody opened to 26,000, and Gus Hansen came along to the flop.

It came {10-Spades} {2-Clubs} {A-Clubs}, and both men checked to see the {2-Hearts} on the turn. Hansen led out with 31,000 now, and Cody quickly flicked the calling chips into the pot. The {8-Clubs} landed on fifth street, and it went check-check again.

Neither player had a pair, but Cody's {K-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} was good enough to earn him the pot and further squeeze Hansen here in his first chance of chips.
