Event 36 - Hous Zat!?!
And it's all over! Jesper Housgaard managed a marvelous comeback after that one hour dinner break. Through a combination of aggression and being dealt a few good cards at the right time, Housgaard managed to break Cody Slaubaugh's heart and take the bracelet.
The final hand was a nasty one for the latter, Cody raised to $150,000 and Jesper made it $500,000, having started to re-raise preflop a lot. Cody then made it $1,300,000 and Jesper moved in. Cody made the call and Jesper had him covered by just $25,000, a single green chip.
Cody: A♦ T♥
Jesper: Q♠ Q♦
The board pretty much left the young American drawing dead on the flop, coming Q♥ 2♣ 8♦ before the 5♥ left him dead on the turn and the A♥ was too little, too late.
Slaubaugh did get a consolation in the form of $389,128 while Housgaard will be more than happy with the $610,304 he receives.
