Gus Hansen feels the bite of trex313

Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius may be grabbing all the headlines as the ultimate heads-up match continues.

But Gus Hansen and Hac "trex313" Dang have been writing their own 1v1 story.

As of 6 p.m. ET, Hansen and Dang are in the midst of a massive $500/$1,000 PLO battle spread over Full Tilt tables Hansen Knockout and Hansen Hideout.

Hansen appears to be down in the session (which contradicts this article), while Dang has raked several pots worth over $100,000.

In fact out of 10 $100,000+ pots that have been played between the two of them today, Dang has won eight.


It's worth noting that Dang has quietly amassed over $2 million in poker profits in the early stages of 2009. Although some find it surprising, Hansen has also put together a great start to the year, having already gained over $1 million.

If the two players keep gunning for each other, it might be time for the Dang Challenge (or the Great Dane Challenge, if you prefer).

As always, keep checking MarketPulse for the biggest online hands or download the Full Tilt client to rail the action yourself.

Here's a look at some of the biggest hands to keep you busy while you're waiting for the next session of the durrrr Challenge:
