Gus Hansen out of the Super Highroller
Gus Hansen started very bad and he never recovered from that.
Not long after our last update from Gus Hansen, we received a new message from 'The Great Dane'
- Out :(
We just received some more news from Gus Hansen. It is unfortunately bad news.
- Slow play turning sour :( A 3 way pot with Elky and Sam Trickett where they both check the T4 flop to me and i decide to check a big hand behind. Turn is the ugly 9 of hearts completing both straight and flush draws (The observant reader will now know that there was 2 hearts on the flop even though i forgot to say so ;))
- Sam bets 10k into 17k, Elky calls and i call. River is the 7 of clubs and Sam bets 27k, Elky fold and i am left with a very ugly decision - am i supposed to fold a set? I am too curious to let it go and have to pay the prize when Sam turns over T8 of clubs for a rivered straight.
The play in the first european Super Highroller tournament has been underway for a couple of hours now.
34 players decided to put down the €100,000 buy-in. One of them is Gus Hansen. But he isn't off to the best start.
Asmallpokerworld.com just received an update from 'The Great Dane', where he reports on today's play so far:
- The action is in my hometown of Monaco at the moment - the EPT Grand Final is back where it belongs and we are starting out today with a 100K Euro High Roller event.
- I am not exactly off to a good start as my stack has been dwindling frem the get go - Maybe i am just rusty from the last months inactivity on the poker front? It is certainly not lack of creativity that ha created a hole in my stack - as i have tried a 3 barrel bluf against Elky (didn't work), a 2 barrel against Patrik (didn't work either) and a couple of other fancy plays (also without success :( Maybe i should tighten up?, reports Gus Hansen exclusively to asmallpokerworld.com.
