Thanks to pokernyhederne and some cryptic tweets from Doyle Brunson it was revealed that the two men who lost their shit in the Bellagio’s high stakes Bobby’s Room were none other than Gus Hansen and David Oppenhiem.
Also had some fireworks in bobby’s room. Two players that had been playing for 48 hours got tilted and threw 150k chips in cardroom floor.— Doyle Brunson (@TexDolly) December 28, 2016
Saw a player that will not be named, run 12k into 550k in a 2-4k mix game last night.— Doyle Brunson (@TexDolly) December 28, 2016
Hansen took to his Facebook page to say: “tensions got high, voices got loud and chips literally went flying when David Oppenheim and yours truly Gus Hansen got into a serious argument – no punches were thrown – but I think it is safe to say that both of us thought about pulling the trigger.”
Still no word on what the argument was about though.
Last week on the special edition of the Pokerfuse Podcast, our host Michael Gentile sat down with former Head of Corporate Communications and Global Poker Marketing for PokerStars, Eric Hollreiser, to discuss various topics covering everything from Black Friday to Supernova Elite, PSPC and what’s the future of online poker may look like, and much more!
PokerStars gave away 320 free entries to the $25,000 buy-in PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) over the course of the previous year via Platinum Passes that after accomodations and spending money were valued at $30,000.
