$14 Million In Full Tilt Poker Losses For Gus Hansen
Danish Player Sinks Further Into Unbelievable Hole
Gus Hansen lost more than $200,000 on Thursday, which brings his lifetime losses on the Full Tilt Poker software to $13,998,140, according to HighstakesDB.
Hansen dropped $2 million over the past seven days to send his career deficit on the software to a new all-time low. Hansen has about double the losses of the second-worst tracked online poker account in history.
In 2013, Hansen has lost a staggering $7.5 million over around 157,000 hands.
He has had only a couple of noteworthy upswings over the past 10 months.
Here’s a look at his 2013 HighstakesDB graph.
Most of Hansen’s action these days comes at the nosebleed limit Omaha eight-or-better and limit deuce-to-seven triple draw tables. His recent losses have not been the result of gambling it up in massive big-bet games such as pot-limit Omaha or no-limit hold’em.
Card Player has been covering Hansen’s plunge for much of this year. In August he had reached $10.4 million in lifetime losses; before the end of October he was down $12 million; and just four days ago it was $13.5 million in the hole.
No one in the online poker world has been losing like Hansen lately.
On the flip side of things, Niklas “ragen70” Heinecker had a great past seven days by winning more than $500,000. The German is now the top performer this year with $3.7 million in profits. Viktor “Isildur1” Blom lost $100,000 this week, but has been playing pretty consistently as of late. He is the second biggest winner on the year with around $3.4 million in earnings.
Some of the game’s top online poker grinders have opted out of being tracked on HighstakesDB, so a full look at a leader board is not very accurate or useful.
