Another bad week for Gus Hansen saw him lose more than $300,000, according to tracking data from HighstakesDB. With the loss, his is now down more than $9.5 million on Full Tilt Poker over his career while playing on the site under his real name.

Full Tilt opened in 2004, and Hansen’s data goes back to 2007.

Around the summer of 2009 Hansen was sitting at about $1.7 million in profits on the site, but then went on a downswing that lasted more than a year. He was down about $10 million. However, in the fall of 2010, Hansen began one of the biggest heaters in the history of online poker. By the spring of 2011, he had erased about $6 million of those losses.

When Black Friday struck in April and Full Tilt Poker 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, who had millions locked up in his account, began to play again.

It’s been horrific since then. In the span of six months, Hansen has lost $6,328,995.

Here’s a look at Hansen’s chart, via HighstakesDB.

The “Gus Hansen” screen name is the biggest loser in the history of online poker. Here’s a look at the five most miserable screen names of all-time.

1. Gus Hansen: -$9,535,729
2. noataima: -$7,067,935
3. lady marmelade: -$6,632,177
4. patatino: -$5,924,546
5. Niki Jedlicka: -$4,449,287

Hansen has played more than 1.2 million hands lifetime on the software, which means he’s averaged a $7.50 loss per hand over his career.

Another story to smear his name ever since the comment of Howard Lederer. Grow up now Card Player. What's done is done, and I still have money there too.

Hey jaydog, I can barely hear the crickets chirping over the sound of the tumbleweeds rolling by in the Full Tilt Poker bank vault (er, uh I mean the halls of the DOJ and the IRS). Your money has long long gone bye bye. Buh bye!

Perhaps Phil needs to take some lessons from the other Phil.
