Gus Hansen Obliterated Tuesday On Full Tilt
Poker Pro Loses Close To $1 Million At High-Stakes Tables
Going into Tuesday, Gus Hansen was on a big, yet rare upswing on Full Tilt Poker. However, after the day was over, the persistent Danish pro had lost close to $1 million.
According to HighstakesDB, Hansen lost the sum over more than 2,700 hands of play.
For much of the day, Hansen was engaged in a huge $1,500-$3,000 limit deuce-to-seven triple draw battle against Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau. Nothing seemed to go Hansen’s way.
The tables were so completely lopsided at one point that Hansen was down to just a few thousand bucks while his opponent was sitting pretty with more than $600,000.
Hansen was vocal numerous times about his frustration. He remarked in the chat box after one spot, “Sorry I beat you this hand, you got really unlucky.” The poker pro added that Luneau’s rush was “beautiful to watch”. However, he kept on playing.
Although he was able to recoup a significant chunk of his money from Luneau, Hansen was also in a bloodbath against unknown SallyWoo at $2,000-$4,000 limit Omaha eight-or-better. After hundreds of hands, Hansen’s opponent had more than $700,000.
In addition to Hansen, Full Tilt pro Viktor “Isildur1” Blom had a poor day. According to HighstakesDB, he lost more than $400,000 Tuesday and now sits with about $3 million in profits for the year. He was once up more than $5 million on 2013.
While Hansen and Blom have been extremely active on the software, fellow site sponsored pro Tom “durrrr” Dwan hasn’t been grinding day in and day out lately. However, he has managed to lose more than $500,000 on the year so far, according to HighstakesDB data.
Hansen (about $3.5 million) and Dwan (about $1.5 million) are the two largest losers on Full Tilt since the site relaunched worldwide, except in the United States, on Nov. 6.
