Gus Hansen Admits No Tracking Software Or Table Selection

Gus Hansen Admits No Tracking Software Or Table SelectionLast month, high-stakes poker’s punch bag Gus Hansen managed to lose another $280,774 at Full Tilt’s virtual tables to put him the hole a further -$1,755,068 for the year, so far. Although the amount seems inconsequential compared to some of the sums he’s dropped over single sessions, Gus had dropped $2 million between the 17th and 27th March, including losing around $1 million over the weekend.
Not surprisingly, coming off such a hefty losing streak not only caused Gus a great deal of consternation, but also to reflect on his future as a high-stakes online poker professional. As a result, some of the options Gus has been exploring range from a not so drastic sabbatical period, to complete retirement from online poker all together.
“Well, right now, I’m not very fucking positive, I can tell you that! I mean, I had another big losing session last night, so I need sleep and exercise. Actually, I’ve been on a long losing streak, so I have to look away from the results and look at how I’m handling myself and how I play. I have to dig deep and find a way to get back on top of things. This might include even a longer break from poker just to clear my head.”
This is naturally not the first time the 40 year old pro has contemplated packing it all in, especially having lost -$16,627,813 since joining Full Tilt in 2007. However, Gus may be tiring of being consistently outmaneuvered by the other pros almost half his age, as well as  his dubious honour of the world’s biggest online poker loser.
There are some specific areas of improvement Gus has highlighted which could help turn his game around somewhat. Gus, for instance, admits to having “just about the worst game selection in the world.” In addition, like his fellow Full Tilt Ambassador Viktor Blom, Gus admits to not using any tracking software, explaining:
“ seems like I should. I don’t know much about Holdem Manager and Poker Tracker, but it looks like I should learn more.”
In the absence of any major adjustments, however, it may not be too long before online poker loses one of its most endearing characters, and the poker community loses one of its biggest cash cows.
“You just have to be better than the others at your table. Of course, people have been getting better and better. This is not 2003 anymore, and it sure isn’t 1995,” lamented Gus.
