High Stakes Hansen – Gus Makes It A Milly

Tack on another massive profit as Hansen reduces deficit.

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!
