He’s at it again. Apparently having read our pal pokerlolz tweet from yesterday, Gus “The Great Dane” Hansen strung two massive winning days in a row to take a large chunk out of his notoriously massive online poker “downswing”.
Hansen had been on a huge cooler as of late and began yesterday’s regular online grind with a $3,015,645 shortfall to work on – and that was just in 2014. That’s exactly what he did. After some impressive plays and a clear change of pace, the 40 year-old Hansen pulled back another $691,959 to reduce his 2014 deficit to $2,323,686.
After 15 sessions and 2,359 hands of classic Hansen poker, the poker pro had taken down one of his largest daily hauls of the year. A whopping $171,094 of that came via 9 sessions playing $1500/$3000 8-Game Mix. In the process of winning, Hansen delivered blows to well-known online grinders Phil “Polarizing” Ivey and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom.
It was however a feeding frenzy on the Full Tilt Triple Draw Tables that made up the bulk of Hansen’s $691,959 daily cash grab. In three sessions he was up $104,000, $151,000 and $158,000 in an unstoppable drive that far surpassed his previous day’s Triple Draw winnings.

All told, between Sunday and Monday’s action, Hansen has extraordinarily pocketed $1,238,628.
Can Gus put more winning sessions together? If so, we’ll let you know!
