Gus Hansen has been burning up the online charts this year but ran into trouble this week losing $255k.

Despite the EPT Grand Final taking some of his time, Hansen was still able to record 2,184 hands of high stakes poker on Full Tilt

The Great Dane had several disastrous $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha sessions against O Fortuna PLS and DrugsOrMe.

Since online poker’s Black Friday shut the doors to U.S. players on Full Tilt, Hansen has been on extended slide that’s seen him lose $883k.

Fortunately for Hansen his exceptional play in the early stages of the year still has him as the biggest overall winner with $2.8 million in profit.

It’s an eerily familiar situation for Hansen who won $2 million in early 2010 before crashing and burning right before the WSOP and then crashing even harder in the fall. He finished the year down over $500k.

Hansen will look to avoid the same fall from grace as he continues to play into the last few weeks before the 2011 WSOP.

Meanwhile Limit specialist O Fortuna PLS had a fantastic week, racking up $237k to become the biggest winner in the last seven days. He’s now up over $1 million in online poker this year.

Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies was also able to post a rare winning week taking down a total of $108k.

Sahamies has had his share of troubles over the last six months and at times seemed unable to return to his winning form. Despite his victory he is still down $455k this year.

Patrik Antonius has been one of the most successful players since Black Friday but that didn’t stop him from donating $192k this week.

It was a very short week for Antonius as he only recorded 251 hands and the majority of his losses were against fellow FTP pro Gus Hansen. Antonius is still up nearly $1.7 million since Black Friday.

Some of the other players in this week’s losing column included LuckyGump (-$159k), samrostan (-$130k), RivalzZz (-$120k) and vmnielsen (-$112k).

Rounding out the winner top five were L0ve2playU (+$176k), alexeimartov (+$131k), PepperoniF (+$115k).
