High-Stakes Poker: Gus Hansen Down $2.6 Million Since FTP Relaunch
As 2012 Winds Down, Poker Pro Still In Slump Since Early November
He just keeps losing.
He lost about $370,000 since last Friday.
The losses have made the Danish star by far the biggest loser on the software since it relaunched in early November. Hansen was on about a $6-million upswing prior to Full Tilt shutting its doors in 2011 under prior ownership.
His downswing is mitigated by the fact that he had tons of money frozen in his Full Tilt account over many months. Also, in tournaments this year, Hansen has cashed for about $1.8 million, with most of that coming in a World Series of Poker satellite tournament.
Full Tilt is now run by PokerStars, which also features its own nosebleed action. After the acquisition, the company has control over the priciest stakes on the Internet.
While Hansen has dropped the most since Full Tilt’s relaunch, “Davin77” is up the most. The grinder sits in the black more than a million during the time period.
According to the TwoPlusTwo forums, Davin77 is German Davin Georgi.
The largest pot of the past week across all platforms in the online poker realm featured a $95,000 confrontation at $200-$400 no-limit hold’em.
On Full Tilt, “punting-peddler” got it all in on a K 10 6 flop against “Tight-Man1”. Punting-peddler held the A K against his opponent’s Q 10. They ran it twice, and A-K was the winner both times. According to the Texas hold’em odds calculator, top pair, top kicker holds up about 75 percent of the time for a single run-out.
Ivey is now playing under the screen name “Polarizing”.
