David “Raptor” Benefield and Gus Hansen were the two biggest losers during another intense evening of online poker.

Benefield, who is a full-time instructor at poker training school CardRunners, waded his way into $200/$400 Six-Max Cap PLO and played against regulars such as Di "Urindanger" Dang, La Key U, DIN_FRU and Vaga_Lion for over five hours.

In 1,812 hands Benefield racked up over $260k in losses.

It didn't help that Benefield also opened a few heads-up tables against Scott "URnotINdanger2" Palmer and ended up losing nearly $100k to the young upstart online grinder.

It seems to be a trend for Palmer as he also took a couple hundred thousand from Benefield's close friend Tom "durrrr" Dwan this weekend.

Despite his losses Benefield is still up nearly $850k in 2010.

On the other hand is Gus Hansen who added to his problems by losing $176k over 667 hands. Hansen is now down over $1 million in 2010.

The spoils were spread amongst a variety of players but the biggest winners last night were Jani Vilmunen ($137,196), Erik "DIN_FRU" Sagstrom ($124,612) and SmitjeSmee ($97,197).
