Gus Hansen On $2.5 Million Upswing Since Mid-October 2010

Despite being a prolific poker player, Gus Hansen has had a hard time matching his achievements at Full Tilt’s cash tables to those he has enjoyed on the tournament circuit.
The ‘Great Dane’ has won around $8 million from live tournaments, but has also lost an equivalent amount online playing high stakes cash games.
After hitting a high of $2.33 million in January 2010 and a low of $3.68 million in September, Gus Hansen’s fortune seems to be on the turn once more. He has now successfully managed to claw back around $2.5 million over the last few weeks to limit his losses for the year to $1.2 million.
Hansen’s latest winning session came at the weekend when he walked away a $280k winner, after playing  Pot-Limit Omaha at various stakes against the likes of such online pros as harrington25, Ashton “ASHMAN103” Griffin. DrugsOrMe and luckexpress10.
Both Luckexpress10 and DrugsOrM lost $80,000 pots to Hansen who, despite losing a $33,100 pot to ASHMAN103, finished a big winner for the session.
Hansen is continuing to play solid poker and show great composure as he battles to eek out a profit for 2010. However, either way Gus is unlikely to go broke anytime soon as in 2005 he sold his online poker site for $15 million and now has a lucrative contract in place at Full Tilt Poker as a part owner.
In other news, Finnish pro Patrik Antonius has continued to go from strength to strength after being stuck $3.61 million in February. Since then, Antonius has been on a massive $5.18 million upswing to show a profit of $1,574,800 for 2010.
Antonius’ results were helped along by a $505,000 boost to his bankroll yesterday, after playing 1,257 hands of $2K/$4K fixed limit against  IhateJuice.
Patrik has been a big winner in the online cash games since hitting Full Tilt, and in 2008 made a profit of $1,346,820, and a massive $8,973,946 in 2009. Looks like 2010 will be no exception and is likely to finish yet another winning year for the 29 year-old pro.
