Gus Hansen Already $1.16m Down At Full Tilt In 2014

Gus Hansen Already $1.16m Down At Full Tilt In 2014Last year was yet another disastrous year for Gus Hansen after the Danish pro dropped a massive $8,461,472 at Full Tilt’s virtual felts to take his lifetime losses on the site to around $15 million.
Unfortunately for Hansen, however, 2014 is shaping up to be more of the same, and after initially recording an upswing of $200,000, the 39 year-old has since plunged a further -$1,161,939 in the red to take his overall losses to a staggering -$16,034,684.
Despite The Great Dane’s ever declining fortunes, he still seems  intent to put his money on the line against some of the best online players in the game, including the likes of Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene and Jens “Ingenious89” Kyllönen. Nevertheless, Hansen seems to be exercising a little more caution these days by steering away from the high stakes pot-limit games he used to play, in favour of fixed limit tables, instead.
Not surprisingly, Gus Hansen’s terrible results have caused him to go through the whole gamut of emotions and even question his own online poker skills. As Gus commented at the end of 2013: “..I’ve been doing a lot of losing lately and I’ve been frustrated. I feel like I am missing something. Maybe I’m outdated. I used to be the biggest winner on Omaha HiLo while in the last six months I’m the biggest loser on Omaha HiLo..I am kind of questioning myself. I think every competitive player has to question himself at some point and ask ‘has the game surpassed me? Am I rusty? Am I not good enough in this game anymore?”
Naturally, being the biggest loser in the history of online poker has also made him the focus of the poker community, which has then wondered just how much the ‘Full Tilt Ambassador’ is worth and how much longer he can afford to keep losing such huge amounts of money. It is known, for instance, that the co-founder did sell the site for $15m in 2005, and that he has also made $11,240,677 from live poker tournaments, in addition to reputed millions playing high-stakes backgammon games.
Furthermore, Gus Hansen’s losses at Full Tilt don’t seem to particularly worry the Dane, either, who seems more intent on proving he’s a winning player than focusing on the huge sums of money he’s down. As Hansen recently explained:
“I still have money in my pocket. My online numbers aren’t looking too pretty, but I can still afford a sandwich…A little more selective [in regards to table selection], play better, that’s basically my goal right now.”
