Gus Hansen Up $4 Million In 2011

By August 2010, Gus Hansen’s time spent playing cash poker at Full Tilt hit an all time low when his results showed a $9 million loss over a four year period.
However, in September, 2010 the talented Danish tournament player then captured his first ever WSOP bracelet at the £10,350 NL High Roller HU event for £288,409 ($444,925).
This deserved recognition of Hansen’s prodigious talents then seemed to positively impact his online cash results, too, and he has been on a major upswing ever since.
Within 9 months, Hansen has now managed to amass over $6 million playing at the virtual poker room and he currently heads Full Tilt’s leaderboard with $3,993,460 in profits for 2011.
In the past, however, Gus Hansen has endured many wild swings and false starts which have seen his initial profits decimated after hugely promising starts.
Most notably, Hansen was in profit $4.26 million in 2009 before finishing the year in the red a staggering $5,575,624. Similarly, this year Hansen, too, hit a peak of around $4.1 million before dropping down to around $2 million. 
This time around, however, Hansen seems to have got his game very much on the right track and he has not only reestablished himself as one of Full Tilt’s top cash players, but he is also an impressive $2 million profit ahead of his nearest rival.
In addition to the positive influences to his game after his wsop bracelet win and the departure of the top US players from Full Tilt post Black-Friday, Hansen further explains his recent surge in the following way:
“I’ve made some corrections to mistakes that I’ve been making in the past. My focus is a little better, and I stopped playing too loose in some situations. I’ve adjusted to different opponents, and basically have been running a lot better. If we go a year back in time, I wasn’t running too well, and was making bad decisions, which led to the downfall. Fixing the poor decision-making and getting the best of the cards is a recipe for winning on the Intern.”
Having plugged some of his major leaks, Hansen would now seem to be reaping the rewards for his hard fought efforts and hopefully he will continue going from strength to strength as the year progresses.
