Busse Takes Down Event No. 47!

BusseBusse Cripples Crowe

Owen Crowe and Shawn Busse were pretty close to equal in chips when one hand nearly ended the heads up battle.

On that hand, Busse raised to 200,000 from the button and Crowe called. On a flop of 8Heart Suit5Heart Suit5Spade Suit Crowe led for 275,000 and Busse popped it up to 725,000. Facing a reraise, Crowe reached for even more chips and raised to 1.54 million. Busse put the period on the raising war by moving all in.

“I guess you got aces,” Crowe said, then called.

He was right. Their hands:

Busse: ADiamond SuitAHeart Suit
Crowe: JHeart Suit9Heart Suit

Busse held pocket aces but Crowe had the flush draw. The turn brought the KSpade Suit and Crowe needed a heart or else he would be completely crippled. It wasn’t to be, as the 4Diamond Suit hit on the river and Busse took a pot that gave him 9.1 million to Crowe’s 240,000.

CroweCrowe Finishes Runner-Up ($300,494)

Crowe got his last chips in preflop and Busse called. Their hands:

Crowe: 5Heart Suit3Heart Suit
Busse: AHeart Suit4Spade Suit

The flop hit Crowe, running 7Club Suit7Spade Suit3Club Suit to give him two pair. But an incredible comeback wasn’t in the cards for Crowe, and the 6Heart Suit turn and 6Spade Suit river nullified his threes and Busse’s Ace-kicker gave him the pot, his first WSOP title, and $485,791

Crowe took $300,494 in his third, and deepest, final table run.

Action Picks Up

WhiteWhite Rivered in 9th Place ($36,287)

Adam White arrived at the final table as the chip leader, but after getting involved in some big pots early he found himself short on chips and all in for his tournament life against the always dangerous Owen Crowe.

In that hand, Crowe raised from middle position to 95,000, and White decided to reraise all in for 270,000 more. Crowe made the call and they showed their hands:

White: KDiamond SuitJClub Suit
Crowe: 5Club Suit9Club Suit

The flop missed both players, running 7Diamond Suit6Spade Suit2Spade Suit to keep White’s king high in the lead but provide Crowe with a straight draw.

The turn brought the 4Heart Suit and Crowe had even more outs. The river didn’t provide Crowe with a straight, but it gave him the 9Heart Suit to make a pair. Crowe took the pot and White was the first victim of the final table, finishing in 9th for $36,287.

Crowe had 2.8 million in chips following the hand.

BaekkeBaekke Loses Flip, Out in 8th ($47,379)

Allan Baekke, the 2010 EPT Snowfest Main Event winner, was the next player to go.

When action folded to him in the small blind he moved all in for around 750,000. Shawn Busse looked down at his cards from the big blind and made the call. Their hands:

Baekke: KHeart SuitJHeart Suit
Busse: 7Heart Suit7Club Suit

It was time for a coin flip. The flop ran 6Spade SuitQDiamond Suit2Heart Suit and Busse’s sevens were still ahead. The turn was the QHeart Suit, giving Baekke a flush draw. The highly anticipated river was the 6Club Suit, and Baekke missed his outs. Busse’s two pair were best, eliminating Baekke in 8th place for $47,379.

Busse took a nice pot and the chip lead, with 3.3 million in chips.

Crowe: AClub SuitKDiamond Suit
Mann: KClub SuitQHeart Suit
