Hansen Drops Close To $1 Million At High Stakes
Different month, same story for Gus Hansen. So far this week he had been on fire at the tables, collecting profits of more than a million, yet yesterday he threw most of it away in a huge session. The ironic thing is that we have seen all of this before, exactly the same thing happened in December.
He played for a total of fourteen hours online at Full Tilt Poker, with him losing massive amounts to both “Alexonmoon” and “SallyWoo”.
During this time he dropped $164k when up against “Seb86” in a small ninety minute session at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables. He then went on to play “Alexonmoon” for a thirteen hour stint at the tables in which he lost $364k. It could have been a whole lot worse too as he was even further down to “Alexonmoon” for most of the session yet managed to claw a lot back.
Also during that session Hansen decided to sit at a $2,000/$4,000 Fixed Limit Omaha Hi/Lo table, with “SallyWoo” being the opponent to sit at his table. This particular session lasted around eight hours, with Hansen taking a complete bashing as he dropped $520k to his opponent.
That put his losses for the day at $953.6k, with an $88k win a little earlier against “SallyWoo” being the difference of him losing over a million. This also stopped “SallyWoo” from being the days highest earner and eclipsing the half a million mark.
The day’s biggest winner was in fact the other player who took a substantial amount from Hansen, “Alexonmoon” recording profits of $452.6k. He also took around $100k from another players who is suffering recently, with “Isildur1” again being one of the days strugglers. In total he dropped $411k over the course of a few sessions against players like “Sauce1234” and “PostFlopAction”.
Other winners on the day included “patpatpanda” who secured profits of $398.6k on the $200/$400 tables, whilst “davin77” won most of his $252.9k profit when p against “Poker_KaMI”.
The Biggest Profits!
Alexonmoon – (+$452.6k)
SallyWoo – (+$434.6k)
patpatpanda – (+$398.6k)
PostFlopAction – (+$368.9k)
