Gus Hansen gets chomped

Gus Hansen

Just as everyone expected, Gus Hansen has been throwing his weight around online again, winning the day's largest pot (so far) against David Benyamine, while losing the second largest against trex313.

When Gus Hansen is on the table, you never really know what to expect. He's hyperaggressive, ridiculously skillful and always, always, always good for some serious action.

It's this aggression that can fool opponents into paying Hansen off in situations where he should receive nothing, but it's also this aggression that will allow his opponents to hit monstrous pots when they make the nuts themselves.

In this hand online high-stakes pro trex313 gets a little bit of good luck (not all that much, since he did have approximately 900 outs), and a nice large pot.
