What an amazing final of the High Roller Heads-up championship event in London! After a nearly 8 hour long battle on Thursday night, the tournament crew called it a day and the tournament went on a break for 2 days. Yesterday, Gus Hansen and Jim Collopy once again sat down at the poker table, this time in order to play the last of the 3 heads-up matches so a winner could be crowned. After about 3 hours of play, it was "The Great Dane" who had all the chips on his side of the table after winning all in with full house (deuces full of jacks) vs Collopy's three of a kind (ace kicker). For the win Gus Hansen received nothing less than $451,880 and his very first WSOP bracelet. A big congratulations to Gus Hansen!

Yesterday, the WSOPE London High Roller Event's semi-finals were played. Gus Hansen (Denmark) played against Andrew Feldman (UK), while Collopy (USA) battled Ram Vaswani (UK). It was 2 quite long (but kind of thrilling) heads-up matches the small crowd at Casino Empire in London got to watch. It ended up being Gus Hansen and Jim Collopy who won their matches and made it to the final heads-up. This meant that a native wouldn't win the tournament.

After a short break, Hansen and Collopy sat down at the poker table again to play the final (best of three matches) - a final that would last nearly 8 hours and still end up in a tie.
