Gus Hansen added another victory to his impressive run in 2011 last night.

Hansen dragged $171k in 281 hands to take top spot on the online cash game leaderboard last night.

The Great Dane stuck mostly to $300/$600 Heads-Up PLO although he did play a brief session of $500/$1,000 PLO.

Hansen’s latest victim was Andreas “skjervoy” Torbergsen.

He picked off a $166k in just 89 hands of $300/$600 PLO against Torbergsen. Apparently Torbergsen had had enough after that because he called it a night.

Hansen moved on to play 150 hands against Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond but neither player could land a decisive blow.

Finally Hansen logged off when he reached 171k in profit for the night. Hansen continues to own the 2011 online poker leaderboard with over $4.7 million in profit on Full Tilt Poker.

The Great Dane wasn’t the only player to record a significant victory, however, as Galfond escaped with a $107k profit and on PokerStars Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky took down $136k.

Also of note were Tom “durrrr” Dwan winning $44k and trash-talking Londoner Luke “FullFlush1” Schwartz picking up $51k.

Schwartz, who famously said he was, “sending durrrr broke” in 2009, has not been particularly active over the last year on Full Tilt and prior to last night was down $139k in 2011.

Meanwhile Torbergsen was the night’s biggest loser dropping a total of $166k to Hansen.

Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, who lost to Daniel Negreanu in the SuperStar Showdown on Sunday, also had an unfortunate night on PokerStars losing $136k to Sauce123.

Other players to fall into the red last night were Van Marcus (-$129k), TheoJ (-$75k), ILoseSoWhat (-$74k) and urnotindangr (-$57k).
