Denmark’s finest was denied the opportunity to get his first bracelet at the World Series of Poker on US soil after he was beaten on Friday in the $25,000 Head’s Up event by Jake Cody.  To date, Hansen has only won a single WSOP bracelet at the World Series of Poker Europe last year.

The young British pro has been dominating the poker scene in the past year. 

"When it got heads-up, it didn't seem real, “ Cody said  “… but when I got heads-up, I was like, 'oh my god.' I'm one match away from being the youngest triple crown winner ever, the fastest triple crown winner ever. To make history in this one match …."

Cody also knocked out the mighty Russian poker pro Yevgeniy Timoshenko in the final.

"I'm happy with how I played," said Timoshenko. "I really have no regrets, other than losing my all-ins. … The way Jake played, and you can't blame him, he played very aggressively. He didn't want to see flops, he just played a lot more preflop poker which, I was kind of, I don't want to say frustrated by, but I did want to see more flops. I play a lot of heads-up no-limit and that's kind of what I like to do is see flops and figure things out postflop."
