Poker Legend Thor Hansen – Tales Of A Young Hustler

Meet the man who planned Larry Flynt's bachelor party.

From this past weekend’s Unibet Open in Cannes, France, poker legend Thor Hansen takes a few moments to sit down and talk about the old days of Stu Ungar, Chip Reese, Doyle Brunson and flying around the world picking up ladies for..ahem…magazine publisher, Larry Flynt.

Hanson recalls playing 10 years in Larry’s private Beverly Hills home game, being stakes for $200K everyday and chopping up the winnings. But Thor’s not one of those guys who is stuck in the past, while there’s been some good times, he’s also enjoyed playing with and learning from the younger generation. He’s found a way to adapt and this “godfather” is still in the game.

Watch the replay of the Unibet Open final table right here.
