Gus Hansen, Full Tilt Poker's $12 Million Loser

Dane Keeps Plummeting Further Into Internet Poker Abyss


It keeps getting worse.

The last 30 days have seen the Gus Hansen screen name on Full Tilt Poker drop around $1.5 million, according to HighstakesDB. With those losses, the Dane is now down more than $12 million lifetime on the Full Tilt software, the lowest mark of his career and by far the worst in the history of tracked online poker for any one account.

Below is his absurd HighstakesDB graph.

Hansen is down around $5.6 million on 2013 and an amazing $8.8 million since Full Tilt relaunched about 11 months ago. Before Full Tilt became insolvent and shutdown under prior ownership, Hansen was on a $6 million upswing. Since regaining access to his online funds everything has been unfathomably terrible online for the 39-year-old.

Hansen has cashed for around $10 million lifetime in live tournaments, but that figure doesn’t include the amount spent on buy-ins, helping make one wonder if he is actually a winner from playing poker in his more than decade-long professional poker career.

Many in poker believe Hansen played an integral part to poker’s boom in the past ten years thanks to his aggressive play, and success, on the World Poker Tour.

Hansen is a Full Tilt sponsored professional.

Its OK Gus. I lost over 20 million in play money at FTP.

My guess is that anyone who still wonders if Gus is "actually a winner from playing poker" is also someone who doesn't know how to read a graph.
