O Fortuna PLS Crushes Hansen
Gus Hansen has had an easy ride in 2011 but O Fortuna PLS put a stop to that last night winning $560k from the Great Dane.
Hansen and O Fortuna PLS played a huge session of $1,500/$3,000 Deuce-Seven Triple Draw and after 1,100 hands O Fortuna PLS had won over half a million.
Known as a high stakes Limit specialist, O Fortuna PLS logged some memorable victories against Tom “durrrr” Dwan last year and is already up $1.3 million in 2011.
The bleeding didn’t stop there for Hansen as he went on to play several other sessions that took his total losses all the way up to $716k.
There was a silver lining, however, for Hansen as early this morning he logged onto Full Tilt and actually managed to take $230k from Cole South in a quick session.
After that session, Hansen was down a total of $486k over the last two days, which, while significant, won’t alter his position as the top online poker earner in 2011 with $3.02 million in profit.
In other high stakes online news, David Oppenheim finally showed of some of those killer cash game chops that he’s learned over the years by winning $252k last night.
Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond was right behind him with $246k while Lance84 (+$207k), EazyPeazy (+$162k) and skjervoy (+$138k) also had memorable sessions.
It’s been a horrific two days for Cole South who lost $581k and is now down over $700k this year.
Other players in the losing column last night included Phil Ivey (-$133k), Seb86 (-$129k) and fishosaurusREX (-$110k).
