Hansen-Collopy Heads Up Final On Hold
The World Series of Poker Europe’s £10k Heads Up final ended in a one all draw early Friday morning, with plans to come back and finish up some time later in the day.
Danish legend Gus Hansen moved through to the final pushing past the UK’s Andrew Feldman in the semis and sat waiting as online MTT star Jim “Mr_BigQueso” Collopy took care of the venerable Ram Vaswani to meet him there.
The best two of three match began with the veteran Hansen pouncing on young Collopy and beating him into submission over the course of the two hours.
Up one to nil, Hansen took a stranglehold on the second round as well and built a solid 2:1 chip lead within the first hour.
His first bracelet seemed within reach when they both flopped trips and Hansen went runner-runner to make a flush and drag a massive pot.
However, Collopy cracked Hansen’s kings to fight back to even as late night turned to early morning in London.
Collopy took the lead and soon after the two got it in with Hansen holding queens against his nines.
A nine on the flop gave Collopy the win in the second round and tied at one all, the two agreed to come back and play the rubber match either in the afternoon or evening Friday.
The time will be determined sometime Friday, allowing both players to get in on the second Day 1 flight of the WSOPE main event.
The £10k Heads-Up event originally drew 103 of the best poker players on the planet to the Casino at the Empire in London’s Leicester Square.
First place is worth £288,409 with £178,211 going to the runner up.
