As a part of the promotion HEADS UP SHOWDOWN, Full Tilt Poker pros Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Gus Hansen were supposed to play against each other on Sunday, September 14.

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

at $20 millions lost this is called compulsive gambling behavior and soon he will touch his business in order to bring more money with recovery in his mind until will lose everything. suicide is coming...mark my words.

It's a shame that Gus Hansen didnt turn up because i would have really liked to see who would have come out on top in this battle. I think Viktor Blom would win and i hope they rearrange this match

Surely he would of had to play just on contractual basis alone, I wonder how this will effect his relationship with Full Tilt

Drunk or something? Everybody knew the exact date well in advance so almost no excuses acceptable. Quite unfair behaviour. I hope they will play this as soon as possible. A lot of fan are now disappointed because of this and they are absolutely right.

Man the guy is on a never ending slump but not showing at the HEADS UP SHOWDOWN,against Viktor "Isildur1" Blom at FULL TILT was disrespectful, inconsiderate and unprofessional to everybody the fans the oponente and to the site(company)
Not a good action and at least for me a blow on is credibility as the face of a poker room

redirect (You need help) to Gus. what he did after $5 million is compulsive gambling and not much time and resources left until he will go broke. expression 'dead man walking' is accurate on him.

That is unprofessional behaviour by Gus. Full tilt promoted the event very much so this was not expected. He will be losing his sponsorship.
