Gus Hansen was one of the biggest winners on Full Tilt Poker this weekend while Viktor “Isildur1” Blom went through an enormous swing.

Hansen has been playing catch-up since his disastrous start on the re-launched Full Tilt that saw him lose millions

Last night was one of his better sessions in quite some time, however.

The Great Dane fired off 549 hands, mostly in FLO8, to record a tidy $471,350 profit, according to highstakesdb.com.

He’s still down about $3 million this year but the victory represents a great first step to getting back in the black.

This weekend was a far different experience for Isildur1 who shot up to nearly $1 million in profit early but then proceeded to lose it all.

Isildur1 lost most of his winnings to an ultra-hot Alex “Kanu7” Millar and Sanlker. Despite the missed opportunity this weekend, Isildur1 remains the biggest winner on FTP this year.

Finally Phil Galfond had a pretty good weekend as he managed to beat EireAbu and Dan Cates to the tune of $334,900.
