Gus Hansen Approaches $19M In Web Poker Losses
Danish Pro Reaches Lowest Point Ever Online
Just when you thought he was on an upswing.
Danish poker player Gus Hansen was on a $1.2 million heater at one point this week, but that quickly ended and he finished the week in a $713,000 hole, according to HighstakesDB.
The losses have left Hansen with a lifetime deficit on Full Tilt Poker of more than $18.7 million—his lowest point ever. He was down around $17.8 million just two weeks ago.
The figures are those endured while he has played on his “Gus Hansen” screen name.
On Wednesday, Hansen and Russian pro Alex Kostritsyn played the largest pot of the past week. The two got more than $100,000 each into the middle after a 10 8 3 flop. Hansen held the 10 9 8 7 and was up against Kostritsyn’s Q 10 10 9.
The two elected to run it twice. The first run-out brought the 2 and the K, giving the first half to Kostritsyn. The second run-out was Q J, giving the other half to Hansen.
Kostritsyn was the biggest winner online for the second straight week. Though he has opted out of having his long-term results tracked, it’s safe to say he’s up millions this year.
For Hansen, the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, which kicks off Tuesday, probably can’t come soon enough. The poker pro has been getting crushed on the Internet all year, and a break to play live tournaments at the Rio would probably be of some help.
