New WSOP bracelet-holder Gus Hansen cruised to a $658k victory on Full Tilt Poker last night.

Hansen played 2,268 hands in $1,000/$2,000 H.O.R.S.E., $500/$1,000 Cap PLO and $300/$600 PLO.

Some of his notable opponents over the span of the evening included Urindanger, Tom “durrrr” Dwan, harrington25 and Brian “sbrugby” Townsend.

In his biggest hand of the session Hansen turned a straight to steal a $177k pot from Dwan and Urindanger.

Thanks to his successful night, Hansen has now improved to being down only $1.4 million on the year. Add in his recent victory at the WSOPE Heads-Up event and it’s safe to say Hansen is on officially on a heater.

Hansen wasn’t the only player rake some huge pots last night. Skjervoy and cadillac1944 played a massive session of heads-up $300/$600.

The still unidentified cadillac1944 would eventually score the biggest pot of the session: a $543,780 monster that also ranked as one of the biggest of the year.

That pot was enough to catapult cadillac1944 to a $478k win against Skjervoy.

Meanwhile Tom Dwan had one of his most disastrous nights in recent memory as he dropped a total of $650,000 in 1,413 hands.

The loss knocks Dwan off the top of the 2010 earnings leaderboard as jungelman12, who wasn’t active last night, defaulted into first with $3.66 million. Dwan fell down to $3.61 million on the year.

Urindanger also had a terrible night losing $450,471, as did Brian Townsend (-$255,825) and Phil Ivey (-$240,000).

Here are a few of the biggest hands from last night. Be sure to check out our online poker stats section for more information.

 

You're in danger now!.

 

$543k buys a lot of Cadillacs.
