Gus Hansen Dominates Tilt’s Cap Games

Gus Hansen
Gus Hansen has his reputation built around one thing: Instigating sick action.

Gus Hansen spent almost all of yesterday seated at Full Tilt’s Cap Pot-Limit Omaha tables, crushing the games for over $485k.

Hansen's day started with a $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO session against ex-CardRunners pro Cole South. After 169 hands, South took his leave down just over $12k.

While waiting for his next opponent at the nosebleed games, Hansen stopped by the $200/$400 Cap-PLO games for 99 hands, adding another $15k to his roll.

Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin signed on to be Hansen's next victim at the nosebleed cap games, losing $145,388 in his 111-hand stay.

After fleecing Griffin, Hansen took six hours off before returning to Full Tilt to join the running $200/$400 Cap-PLO game, where he lost $50,499 over 95 hands.

Shortly after starting the $200/$400 session, Hansen joined Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies at a regular $500/$1,000 PLO table, but left the game after just 26 hands down $14k.

It appears as if Hansen left the game with Sahamies to host a $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO re-match against South. The second round lasted for 220 hands with Hansen making another $376,430.

In total, Hansen added $485,129 to his roll, bringing him up to around $860k profit on the year so far.
