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

Cody Catches Lucky Break, Chops Pot

• Level 8: 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Jake Cody raised to 48,000 holding the button and Gus Hansen three-bet the action to 112,000. Cody shoved his chips in the middle and Hansen amde the call, showing {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}. His hand was dominating the {A-Spades}{Q-Hearts} of Cody and the two settled in as the dealer decided their fates.

A flop of {9-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{7-Hearts} brought no help to Cody and he needed to spike a Queen to take the lead.

The {7-Diamonds} on the turn was a good card for the Brit, as he could now chop the pot with a Jack or a Nine on the river.

The dealer delivered a {J-Diamonds} on the river and Hansen was denied his double-up as the pot was chopped.
