Gus Hansen has had a rough year on Full Tilt but last night he took the first step in reversing his fortunes.

Not only did Hansen make the final four of the prestigious £10k WSOPE Heads-Up in London he went back to his hotel room and annihilated the competition in the high stakes online games.

Hansen played for over seven hours last night and recorded 1,286 hands in $1,500/$3,000 H.O.R.S.E., $500/$1,000 Cap PLO, $300/$600 PLO and $2,000/$4,000 Omaha Hi-Lo.

His main victims were Tom “durrrr” Dwan who lost $258k and Di “Urindanger” Dang who dropped $146k.

By the end of his personal poker marathon Hansen had amassed $402k in profit.

It’s been swingy year for Hansen who shot up to $2 million in profit during the first few months of 2010 but then proceeded to lose it all and go $2.4 million in the hole.

Now down approximately $1.9 million, Hansen still has his work cut out for him if he wants to get even this year. A good start would be winning the £10k WSOP Heads-Up event that concludes later today. First place is £288,409.

Hansen was by far the biggest winner last night but EazyPeazy added $108k to his bankroll. Dani “Ansky451” Stern was also a big winner with $81k profit. Patrik Antonius won a decent $49,933.

Outside of Dwan and Dang, deprimiert (-$117k), luckexpress10 (-$112k) and DIN_FRU (-$83k) lost the most last night.
