Gus Hansen Drops Over Half a Million

Gus Hansen
Massive swings are old news for Gus Hansen.

Gus Hansen’s recent win streak has proved to be short-lived after he lost over $556k in a six-hour session early this morning on Full Tilt.

The session began with Hansen sitting alongside Di "Urindanger" Dang for 176 hands at $500/$1,000 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha. By the end of the match, Dang hand earned over $57,000 before logging off for the night.

Up next came Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, who waged all out battle against the Great Dane for nearly three hours.

The match proved to be a complete disaster for the Full Tilt pro as Hansen proceeded to lose $375,282 to Sahamies over 686 hands.

Up a total of $453,459, Sahamies logged out of the site opening the door for Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin, the next in line to take a shot at one of the world's most popular high-stakes action players.

Griffin only stuck around for just 40 minutes, but still managed to book $150k in profit over his 120 hands.

Hansen would find his final opponent for the session in Tom "durrrr" Dwan, and much to the dismay of the year's current profit leader, the Great Dane finally managed to turn a small profit on the match.

Dwan finished his session down over $125k.

Hansen left the tables down $556,270, cutting his profits so far this year by more than half.
