Antonius Cleans up at 7-Game

Gus Hansen, the center of the high-stakes world.

With Isildur1 nowhere in sight after losing over $3.2 million Tuesday, last night’s high-stakes action abandoned Omaha to join Gus Hansen on Full Tilt’s 7-Game tables.

The one rule of thumb in the high-stakes world is simple: The action will always follow the biggest fish.

And until Isildur1 showed up on the scene, it was Hansen at the top of everyone’s hit list.

“There has been a trend in the online high stakes,” Hansen told PokerListings. “People have been following this guy who is called Gus Hansen. So I think, very soon, there is going to be some action in the 7-game mix.”

With Isildur1 either taking a break or busto after his latest loss, Antonius, Chau Giang, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, Matt Hawrilenko, David Benyamine, Brian Townsend, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, John Juanda and David Oppenheim all spent the night playing mixed games with Hansen.

Antonius came out on top, up over $510k, well ahead of Giang (AKA "La Key U" online), who finished next in line with almost $248k.

Surprisingly, it was the fish of the game who took third place in profit, with Hansen leaving the session up over $222k.

The largest loser on the night was Hawrilenko, who dropped over $432k. Second place on the bad side went to Sahamies, who ended the night down over $395k.

Townsend, who was one of the first high-stakes players to make the move to 7-Game earlier this year, lost over $312,000, twice as much as Tom “durrrr” Dwan, who left the session down $153k.

The rest of the players either won or lost less than $100k.
