Gus Hansen wins $25,000 buy-in satellite

In the wee small hours of Sunday morning local time Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen secured the last remaining seat in the $1 million dollar Big One for One Drop tournament scheduled to start just 12 hours later that day at the Rio in Las Vegas.

Hansen entered a $25,000 satellite to qualify for the big event, besting many of the game's top players in what he later described as one of the toughest fields he had ever encountered.

Here's a sampling of just a few of the 96 players who entered the event:

Jon Turner

Eugene Katchalov

Viktor Blom

Phil Ivey

Brian Rast

Matt Glantz

Yevgeniy Timoshenko,

David Benyamine

JP Kelly

Andy Frankenberger

Carlos Mortensen

Erick Lindgren

Brian Hastings

Chris Moorman

Daniel Alaei

Jason Mercier

Bertrand Grospellier

Sam Trickett

Jens Kyllönen

Will Failla

In the heads up, Hansen beat Shaun Deeb, who is entitled to an alternate seat or a million dollars as his runner up prize. Jason Somerville came in third and took home $400,000.

Early reports indicate that when Hansen and Deeb reached the heads up phase they held a discussion, triggering speculation that they may have agreed on who would win the second placing million dollars, and who would go forward and play in the tournament, where the first place will be worth some $18 million.
