Poker Pro Gus Hansen Up Almost $1 Million For 2010

After a disastrous 2009, which saw the ‘Great Dane’ lose a whopping $5.6 million throughout the year, Gus Hansen would seem to have got his game back on track and is currently up around $1 million for 2010.
Over the last couple of days, Hansen has enjoyed some major wins playing mostly $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO with a stake-limit of $40,000. This version of the game has been kinder to Hansen than the non-capped format and Tuesday, he walked away with a $485,129 profit, mostly at the expense of Cole South and Ashton “theASHMAN103″ Griffin.
The next day Hansen was at it again, this time booking a $308,000 winning session, which then took his May profits, as well as those for the year, to the $1 million mark.
In the meantime, it is rumoured than Gus Hansen has been indulging his love of backgammon recently and that he is currently in the middle of a €2,000,000 game against a wealthy Russian. If true, that was certainly explain his notable absence from the EPT Monte Carlo €25,000 event and his lack of concern over his starting stack of 62,200 chips being blinded away.
As Gus continues to blossom in early May, other players also enjoying a good start to the month include “jungleman12” up $464K, Phil Ivey up $400K and Niki Jedlicka up $348K.
It would appear Tom “durrrr” Dwan has began May as the biggest loser on Full Tilt Poker, and has already managed to lose an incredible $1.55 million, while Ashton ”theASHMAN103 Griffin is also down $571K.
