High-Stakes Online Poker: Gus Hansen Now Down $10.4 Million Lifetime On Full Tilt Poker
Another Bad Week Online Has Dane Further Into The Abyss
Gus Hansen lost $114,498 (according to HighstakesDB) on Thursday, which brings his lifetime losses on Full Tilt Poker to an incredible $10.4 million.
The Dane has lost about $3.4 million more than the next worst in the tracking history. Hansen is officially the biggest loser ever online, but Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté has been rumored to have lost far more back when he was playing under an unknown screen name.
Full Tilt opened in 2004, and Hansen’s official data goes back to 2007.
Around summer 2009, Hansen was sitting at about $1.7 million in profits on the site, but then went on a downswing that lasted over a year. He was down about $10 million. However, in fall 2010, Hansen began a massive heater. By spring 2011, he had erased about $6 million of those losses. But when Black Friday struck in April and Full Tilt shut down that summer, Hansen had to put his upswing on hold for months and months. The site relaunched in November 2012 under new ownership, and Hansen was reunited with his account.
So far in 2013, he has lost $4,003,528, about $1.2 million more than Phil Ivey, who despite being the biggest winner in online poker history, has lost $2.8 million this year.
