Hansen Takes One Out

• Nivå 3: 150-300, 0 ante
Thor Hansen

The action started with Thor Hansen opening to 700 from middle position, and finding a call from the player near the button, as well as both blinds.

The flop came down {q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, as the blinds checked their options, before Hansen threw out a continuation bet of 1,400. His opponent then raised it up to 7,225, which he thought was his all in. He hadn’t realised the 500-chip that was protecting his cards, as the action folded back around to Hansen, who also hadn’t noticed, and made the call.

The {10-Clubs} fell on the turn, and Hansen threw in a 500-chip, and his opponent called, as both tabled their cards.

Hansen: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Opponent: {K-Spades}{Q-Spades}

Hansen was in great shape to eliminate his opponent from the tournament, and when the {5-Diamonds} completed the board, he had done just that, with his ace-kicker proving the difference .
