Hansen Hands

Limit Hold'em

A couple of Gus Hansen limit hold'em hands to share...

We caught the first on the flop with 105,000 in the middle and the board showing {Q-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. Sitting under the gun, Gus Hansen bet (20K), and Marco Johnson raised from the cutoff. Hansen called. The turn was the {J-Hearts} and this time Hansen checked. Johnson bet (40K), and Hansen called.

The river brought the {7-Spades} and a couple of checks from both. Hansen showed {A-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} for treys and jacks and a busted flush draw, and that was enough as Johnson mucked. Johnson slipped to about 595,000 after that one.

Hansen was soon involved in another LHE hand with George Lind. Lind raised from the button, Hansen three-bet from the small blind, and Lind called. Hansen bet the {7-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} flop, Lind raised, and Hansen called. Both then checked the {Q-Hearts} turn. The {K-Clubs} fell on the river, Hansen bet, and Lind called.

Hansen showed {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} this time for the rivered flush, and Lind mucked. Hansen has bumped up to 690,000 after that sequence, while Lind has 890,000.
