Gus Hansen

Digging Out Of High-Stakes Hole

After dropping almost 900k, FTP Pro ends up $200k on day.

Last last night, or early this morning depending on your sleep cycle, we showed you this cool pic of Sebastian 'taktloss47’ Ruthenberg sitting with almost $1 Million dollars in front of him. Now, the details of that session are coming out and it turns out that “taktloss47” destroyed Full Tilt Professional Gus Hansen in a single session to the tune of $877k.

You may think that watching Hansen dump money online is nothing new, but here’s the good news for the struggling online pro: While he was bleeding to Ruthenberg, he was also sitting in a juicy $200/$400 CAP PLO table where, according to HighStakesDB, he was raking $300k! That’s not all, earlier in the day he was dragging 6-figure pots at the $2k/$4k 2-7 Tripe Draw (the same game he lost to Sebastian in) so before he dropped nearly $1 million in his session with Takt, he had a little bit of a cushion.

Finally, even after his epic run bad session with Sebastian, Hansen sat with him again, looking for some revenge. It was there that he staged a bit of a comeback winning BACK almost $240k of his previously lost cash. When Gus’s head hit the pillow after his epic day online – he was actually UP just over $200k and closed the day as one of the biggest online winners.

Ruthenberg for his part still won a pretty decent sized house on the day, finishing up over $532k on the day, according to the Full Tilt Blog.
