Gus Hansen put on another impressive performance on Full Tilt last night winning $437k.

Hansen stuck primarily to the $500/$1,000 Cap PLO games and laid a savage beating on Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer.

The Great Dane would eventually take $361k from Palmer and then moved on to collect another $76k from NoParasan.

When Hansen finally called it quits after 631 hands, he was up a total of $437k.

It’s been a memorable week for Hansen who started by losing over $500k to O Fortuna PLS but has since gone on a tear and actually made a profit this week, taking his overall winnings to over $3.5 million in 2011.

With another successful week in the books for Hansen, he remains atop the 2011 online poker leaderboard.

Hansen was easily the biggest winner last night but there were some good games running on PokerStars and Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton won $118k.

Haxton, who is the only player to have beaten Viktor “Isildur1” Blom in the SuperStar Showdown, took the majority of his profits from Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu.

Negreanu, who is polishing his online chops for his own imminent battle with Blom, had a luckluster night losing $137k. Negreanu lost large sums to Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky and altiFC.

Negreanu wasn’t the only Canadian to have a bad night as XWINK saw his chances of returning to the high stakes games on Full Tilt take a huge hit last night.

XWINK lost $79k in 35 hands last night. In reality he may have jumped the gun on playing high stakes as he recorded seven hands of $500/$1,000 Cap PLO, lost $70k, and then left.

Some of the other players to lose stacks of cash last night included NoParasan (-$162k), Sauce123 (-$63k) and TWOSHAE (-$51k).

Meanwhile Also11 (+$114k), Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond ($84k) and martonas (+$48k) made their way into the winning column.
