Gus Hansen up +$1 million on FTP

Gus Hansen
It's good to be Gus.

Say what you will about alleged fish Gus Hansen, but the renowned Danish player has been killing it for the last few days.

The list of players who have donated to Hansen over the last week includes Di "Urindanger" Dang, Hac "trex313" Dang and, as of today, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond.

The top three biggest pots collected by MarketPulse today were all won by Hansen over online rival Galfond. Hansen is rumored to be up around $1.5 million in the last five days.


All three of the biggest pots were played at Hansen's signature "Knockout" table on Full Tilt Poker. The game of choice was $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.

The biggest hand of the session saw Hansen flop a set of sixes against Galfond, who had a pair of aces. Hansen improved to an unnecessary flush on the turn, and the $134,377 pot was shipped to the Great Dane.

2009 has already been a great year for Hansen as he's rumored to be up approximately $2.5 million.

In other high-stakes poker news the durrrr Challenge is still on hiatus, and it's been close to 14 days since hand 4,178 was played. At least Hansen is still willing to play pretty much anybody at any stakes.
