Gus Hansen once again vanquished all challengers on Full Tilt Poker last night, eventually winning $337k.

Hansen played a total of 567 hands, which included heads-up $300/$600 PLO matches against Antonius and DrugsOrMe. He also recorded a short session of $1,500/$3,000 2-7 Triple Draw against O Fortuna PLS.

As it’s been for most of 2011, Gus Hansen was essentially unstoppable and steamrolled his way through each player.

Despite some troubles in the early weeks of May, Hansen has effectively righted the ship and now has a firm grip on the online poker leaderboard with $3.5 million in profit.

Hansen’s closest competition is Dan “jungleman12” Cates, who has $1.9 million in profit but has not been active since Full Tilt Poker was forced to leave the U.S. market.

It’s been a swingy week for Hansen, who won $686k this weekend, lost $345k on Monday and then won roughly the same amount last night.

Antonius and Hansen seem to be taking turns being the big winner or loser online and last night it was apparently Antonius’ turn to lose.

The Finnish poker pro lost a total of $248k and had the dubious distinction of being the biggest loser on the night.

O Fortuna PLS also had a miserable night and lost $157k, a large portion of which went directly to Hansen. 

Meanwhile Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane was the biggest loser on PokerStars, donating $91k to the high stakes community on the site.

Cochrane is the biggest overall winner on PokerStars this year with $1.8 million in profit but has been on a somewhat of a cold streak lately. The streak is partially due to Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, who gaz101 simply hasn’t been able to crack over the last week. Blom picked up $35k in profit last night.

Some of the other notable losers last night included SanderB12 (-$61k), Halfprice (-$56k) and DrugsOrMe (-$53k).

Meanwhile Hansen was far and away the biggest winner but Esvedra (+$83k), FinnishNightmre (+$55k), le kork (+$51k) and ReadYrSoul (+$41k) all made big scores of their own.
