Gus HansenPoker veteran Gus Hansen is still alive at the end of day two in event No. 4 (£10,350 no-limit hold’em high roller heads-up) at the 2010 World Series of Poker Europe and has a shot at his first WSOP bracelet .

Earlier in the series Phil Laak crossed his name off the unofficial best-without-a-bracelet list by winning event No. 1 (₤2,650 six-handed no-limit hold’em). Hansen, who has $7,245,975 in career tournament earnings, is looking to do the same.

Joining Hansen in the final four tomorrow are established pros Ram Vaswani, Jim Collopy, and Andrew Feldman.

Hansen will face off against Feldman, while Collopy will do battle against Vaswani. Once the round is over, the final two will play in a best-of-three format for the bracelet and the £288,409 first-place prize.

Notables such as Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Neil Channing, Andrew Robl, Daniel Negreanu, and Huck Seed all exited in the money on day two. Seed, the 2009 NBC National Heads-Up champion, made yet another deep run in a major heads-up event.

Negreanu was the last player eliminated before the evening was over, when his pocket queens were unable to hold up against the KHeart Suit 6Heart Suit of Feldman.

Action will resume tomorrow at 3 p.m. London time. Be sure to stay tuned to Card Player tomorrow for a recap of the final.
