Gus Hansen On a $500k Upswing

The Great Dane makes a little back at the online nosebleed tables.

As with Phil “polirizing” Ivey, the online poker tables have not be kind to Gus Hansen as of late, but yesterday proved to be a crucial turning point for ‘The Great Dane’ as he slowly edged his way up to a $546,668 profit by the end of the day.

Check out how Phil Ivey did last week at the nosebleed tables.

Hansen played a total of 18 session with 9 of those sessions played out on the Deuce to Seven Triple Draw tables and the remaining 9 over on the 8-Game tables. Both styles of poker proved to be kind as Hansen took $338,273 from the Triple Draw tables and $208,396 from the 8-Game tables according to>.

The toughest competition came from his 8-Game plays as he faced competition versus some of online poker’s high stakes gunners including Phil “Polarizing” Ivey, Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau, “puntin-peddler, Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn, “samrostan”, Patrick “FinddaGrind” Antonius and Hac “trex313” Dang. Despite the big name lineups, Hansen still ruled the tables—probably winning a large chunk of change already lost to the very same opponents in his past 8-Game endeavors.

For Hansen it had been a miserable week as well as another erratic year of poker, but today he proved there is possibly a silver lining to every dark cloud. Although, Draw has been Hansen’s nemesis over this year accounting for $2,822,810 worth of his so far $3,015,645 in losses—while in 8-Game he has recorded only $379,672 in losses in 2014— ironically Hansen came up trumps in both styles over the course of yesterday’s plays.
