This is a crazy amount of money to lose and i always wonder how much of this is his own money. For a great player like Gus Hansen to lose this amount makes us lesser players think twice about playing for bigger money

Sure it's a crazy amount ! I want to know where he gets the money and spew on the online high stakes tables. If i were in his place i'll quit online poker and focus on the live poker touney and cash game or he should spend more time studying

He is a good player but the younger player now play more aggressively and that is why he loses because he does not adapt well, his loses just keep growing up and he is not giving up and kudos for him for that or it could just be his pride.
I like him as a player though so I hope he ca get back up but this will take a long time and he makes money with his sponsoring contract so no worries for him I guess!
People wondering where he get this money to lose , is that the money come from sponsoring contracts with full tilt etc. Anyway have a nice day!

What can I say? I wish I had his sponsorship money to game with and not care about winning or losing at all. The problem is that the new younger players just do not have any respect it seems for most old poker pros. They chase with nothing and win to often playing crap poker. Hope things turn around for him soon. be cool
Are you kidding?? what the??? he is crazy... yes demo good advice but i think that people like him can't hang it up... oh my god,17 milion? hahahah... that's too bad... now my losses seem so small... thank you gus! but what happened? can a loosing streak be so bad or he forgot to play poker??

@nike yes their losing streaks can really make a difference :=) Unlike our losing streaks, where we lose a few buyins of 2 bucks each, their losing streak might mean losing 20 hands sets them 1m back
so yea those games really are a double edged sword, sure you might win some nice cash in just a few hands, but when you lose, or even worse, when youre on a downswing it migh as well be a 1-2m big downswing

Who know how much money he has accumulated so far, or if someone is backing him up with huge piles of money. Everyone is saying that he is a good player and very aggressive, but the big question is can he bounce back up from such a loss?
