how could Hansen betray his fans, afterall those millions and millions of fans dumped their play money tournaments and/or $0.02 sng's on stars. i mean people were risking their money, some of them their entire bankrolls just to see their idol losing another hu match to add to his ~$20 mill already lost. just no respect, come on Gus after reading this (i'm sure he will) be a man and show up next time
