Pennies from GusHeaven; FTP adds new table

Gus Hansen
Think Gus is overrated? Save your pennies and step to GusHeaven.

He's the big-name TV pro all the young guns on the poker forums love to call a fish.

Gus Hansen's career earnings ($5.9 million in tournament cashes), of course, say otherwise.

Now's the time for the haters to step up and prove it with the introduction of the new six-max $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em "GusHeaven" table at Full Tilt Poker.

FTP knows a hit when it sees one, as its new six-max $500/$1,000 RailHeaven table has been busy with action over the last couple of months.

So two tables it is now, with a reserved seat on this one for Gus and room for five others to get in on the action.

GusHeaven turned into a heads-up match for Tom Dwan and David Benyamine this morning, however, with the end result being the biggest pot online so far today.
