Gus Hansen Day 2a Chip Leader at 2007 WSOPE Main Event


Jennifer Harman to Gus Hansen: "You know you’ve busted every player at this table…"*

That pretty much sums up the Great Dane’s 2a at the 2007 WSOPE. Hansen went on a tear, busting Greg Raymer, Ram Vaswani, and a bunch of others on his climb to chip leader status.

Hansen ended the day stacked at 349,400. He’s followed by Day 1a chip leader Janne Lamsa (253,800). Other big stacks include woman Annie Duke (191,700), the Arabic Alien Huseyin Yilmaz (143,500), Erick Lindgren (108,800), David Colclough (105,800), and Farzad Bonyadi (102300).

The day’s wildest ride belongs to Phil Hellmuth. Starting the Day 2a as one of the chip leaders, Hellmuth took a few big hits and was crippled (figuratively) when he flopped second set. Short-stacked, he managed to stay alive, ending the day just over 10k. Read some of his rants along the way here, here, and here.
