Gus Hansen Returns To Online Poker, Drops $132K

Dane Drops Six-Figure Sum In Four Days


Gus Hansen reemerged on the Full Tilt software after being inactive on the site since September and lost $132,000 over the last four days, according to data from HighstakesDB.

Hansen, and others, were involved in some big action at deuce-to-seven triple draw and the eight-game mix. The most consistent action these days is in the limit games.

The Dane is down $5.655 million on 2014 and more than $20.5 million lifetime on the software, which is the worst all-time for a single account. In October, Full Tilt made public that Hansen and Viktor Blom would no longer be sponsored players. Full Tilt decided to shed its sponsored-player model.

Other big losers over the past week include Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene (-$554,222), thecortster (-$544,262), J B E Z 2 E Z (-$267,049) and Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius (-$147,473).

The big winners over the same time span were SanIker ($822,516), Denoking ($583,254), Patriktortonius ($198,032), PimpyLimpy ($136,024) and Alex “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn ($101,839).

Denoking was the victor in the largest pot of the past week. He won $171,000 from Tollerene after flopping top two pair with Q-10 and getting three streets of value.

Phil Ivey had a small win of around $61,000 on the week.

With just a month left on the year, here’s a look at the biggest winners and losers.

No, Gus is just a tremendous nosebleed fish that either doesn't care about the money for some reason or is still stuck in the mid 2000's thinking he is only running bad right now and will gain back that edge soon. Either way, he is unofficially the most losing poker player of all time in the history of poker if you take into account the time frame over which he has been losing, the consistent losing sessions, and the amount of money he has lost. Who knows what he has lost in live private games over the past few years as well. I am sure there are some business men in Macau that may have lost more money total, but they don't consider themselves 'pro poker players' as a profession.
