Gus Hansen Down $2.85 Million In August

Things are going from bad to worse for Danish poker pro Gus Hansen, after another disastrous session in which he lost yet another bundle of cash.
Playing last Saturday, Hansen managed to drop $1.17 million over 2,166 hands played at Full Tilt Poker to go a staggering $2.85 million down for the month so far.
One poker pro who won’t be too upset by Hansen’s loss, though, is top pro Phil Ivey, who has profited to the tune of $1.8 million in August alone from Hansen’s continuing slide.
Last year, Hansen decided to answer critics who claimed he was a high-stakes fish by reminding them that he had only really been playing online poker for around two and a half years and, according to his calculations he was ahead of the game. Commenting at the time, Hansen stated:
“Basically I’ve played in the highest stakes there are. I’ve played all the Hac Dangs and OMGClayAikens, you name it, all the way to Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius. I’ve played for almost two and a half years and I am winning.”
“I’ve played against the top players in the world and I’m ahead, so I don’t feel too bad. I don’t feel too bad at all.”
In fact, Gus was actually correct and despite his upswings and downswings he was showing an overall profit of $3.1 million at Full Tilt in April 2009.
However, since reaching that pinnacle Gus’s poker graph on looks more like the ski black slope at Corbet’s Couloir, having lost $12.4 million over 16 months to go $9.3 million down in total.
Gus has now got a lot of work ahead of him if he is to get his online game back on track. He should maybe consider sticking to the only game which he is actually showing a profit for, of $3 million at Omaha H/L FL.
The one game he should definitely be staying away from would be Omaha High PL which has been responsible for around $9 million of his losses on the site to date.
