Gus Hansen's 24 Hour Session In Macau's Big Game

After much deliberation as to whether he would play in Macau’s Big Game or not, it would now seem Gus Hansen is in full swing at the Poker King Club after blogging about his latest 24 hour poker session.
Previously, the last news we heard was that the 37 year-old Danish pro had taken a seat at the HKD $10,000/$20,000 (US$1,300/$2,600) cash game, alongside wealthy Asian businessmen and the likes of players such as Tom “durrrr” Dwan, John Juanda and Phil Ivey.
Hansen apparently started well, as soon after he was spotted with HKD $6 million (US$773,000) in front of him at the table, HKD $2 million (US$258,000) of which was winnings.
Gus Hansen then mentioned on his blog that he had just finished a “24 hour session with plenty of big hands,” promising to provide us with more details the following day. However, it appears Gus will now wait a few days before revealing any further details, after he posted the following:
“There is not a lot of time to write blogs when you constantly are playing 24 hour poker sessions, sleeping for 8 hours, going to the gym for 45 minutes and then back to the poker table again. So any thorough update of who was playing and how some of the big hands played out will be a couple days out in the future – Time to sleep  Gus.”
Gus Hansen was in Macau as a stop off on his way to playing in the Aussie Millions, but with the Main Event not getting underway until January 22nd, it would seem Gus Hansen may now be in no great hurry to leave the high-stakes action in the Chinese enclave.
We did at least get one tantalising glimpse into the game after Poker King Club manager Winfred Yu posted on Tuesday:
“I must be crazy. Sitting in a 5 handed game with Phil Ivey, John Juanda and Gus Hansen.”
Winfred Yu then went on to describe a hand in which he was dealt pocket kings and went all-in pre-flop against Gus Hansen, who was holding pocket aces. Yu was relieved to see a King on the flop, but an Ace on the turn put payed to his hopes, but he said he did save save money by taking out some insurance.
We’ll keep you updated to the latest happenings from Macau’s Big Game as information becomes available.
