<a href="http://www.rakerace.com/news/poker-tournaments/wsop-event-2-hansen-in-final-eight/"><strong>As we reported</strong></a>, <strong>Gus Hansen</strong> was a clear favourite for the <em>WSOP $25,000 Heads-Up Championship</em>. However, it was <strong>Jake Cody</strong>, 22-year-old British poker pro, who took down the $851,192 main prize and the <em>WSOP </em>bracelet in the end.
The young pro had the opportunity to join Gavin Griffin and Roland de Wolfe as the only Triple Crown (a WPT title, an EPT title and a WSOP title) winners on earth.

The 4th day of the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship started with the semifinals, 4 players sat down at the heads-up tables to battle for the final table. The American Eric Froehlich played with the Ukrainiand Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Gus Hansen with Jake Cody.

Timoshenko started out with very aggressive play, he took down many pots without showdown. By the 5th blind level (12.000/24.000) he already had 3,200,000 chips versus Froehlich's 1,600,000 (both players had 1 add-on chip package left). The match came to its end on the 8th blind level (20.000/40.000), when Froehlich went all-in with his remaining 800,000 pre-flop (already using his add-on chips). Timoshenko called.

Froehlich: {#}Q {#}5
Timoshenko: {#}A {#}4

Board: {#}J {#}K {#}6 {#}4 {#}3


Timoshenko qualified to the final table first.

The Hansen vs. Cody match also brought some interesting moves, both players used their add-on chips rather quickly. Cody started out better, he caught Hansen's bluffs plus won many smaller pots, taking advantage on the Dane.

Hansen managed to double up on Cody on the 2nd blind level (6.000/12.000), however, he lost his advantage on the 3rd (8.000/16.000), when he went 5bet all-in, Cody called.

Hansen: {#}K {#}Q
Cody: {#}A {#}T

Board: {#}3 {#}6 {#}8 {#}6 {#}3


Cody won with better kicker, Hansen used his last add-on.

Unfortunately for him, he couldn't come back from here. The young British pro defeated the short stack Hansen with a pair of fives in the last hand.

The final has been set, Jake Cody faced Yevgeniy Timoshenko. The two players were quite even for some time, and the atmosphere was comparable to a football match, thanks to the (relatively intoxicated) cheering supporters of Cody. The action was fierce, both players had real chances of defeating the other. On the 5th blind level (30.000/60.000) Cody doubled up with a pair of sixes. From then on, he dominated the match, his chiplead grew continuously until he managed to end the game on the 8th level (80.000/160.000). Timoshenko limped, Cody went all-in, Timoshenko called.
