Gus Hansen Beats Ivey For $200k To Go $4.2 Million In Profit For 2011

Gus Hansen‘s online cash game dominance has continued unabated now for almost seven months, and the Full Tilt pro is currently over $2 million ahead of his nearest rival Matt Hawrilenko at the site for 2011.
Hansen has been enjoying great success at Full Tilt Poker of late, especially at the $500/$1,000 CAP PLO game, which has helped take his profit for the year to a staggering $4,196,483.
Last week, however, Hansen suffered a minor hiccup after losing $560,000 to ‘O Fortuna PLS,’ but that session didn’t seem to slow the Dane down much, who since has managed to add a further $1.3 million to his winnings.
The latest pro generously contributing to The Great Dane’s burgeoning bankroll was none other than Phil Ivey himself. Ivey got involved in some $500/$1,000 Cap PLO action with Hansen on Sunday and it took just 95 hands and a $200,000 loss before Ivey called it quits on the session.
With his ongoing success, Hansen seems to have fixed various leaks in his high-stake cash game which, coupled with a boost to his confidence following his 2010 WSOP success, has seen the 37 year-old ride a $6.4 million upswing since last September.
However, in past years Hansen has has got off to incredible starts only to see his profits plummet over just a few short months. In March, 2009, for example, Gus was in profit $4.26 million before finishing the year down a massive $5,575,624. The same thing happened again in February last year, when he was ahead by $2.73 million only to end 2010 down $225,228.
Nevertheless, this time around Gus Hansen will be hoping to stay the course and finish 2011 atop Full Tilt’s leader board. There will also be plenty of fans hoping the Danish pro does just that as the “action” player enjoys plenty of support from poker enthusiasts everywhere around the world.
