On May 16th we wrote about Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen's incredible $1.57 million win in less than 24 hours. Hansen has been very active at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables since then but not managed to book a nice win until last Monday. He started the day by playing heads-up against Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau at the $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw Tables. The match lasted for four hours and Hansen dominated from start to finish and added $374k to his bankroll.
Hansen continued his winning streak at the $2k/$4k FLO8 tables by wining $185k against Patrik Antonius, Kyle "KPR16" Ray and "samrostan". Then, a little later in the evening, he won another $250k in two 2-7 Triple Draw ring games. Most of those winnings came from Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond and "Seb86". In total, Gus Hansen won $811,618 on Monday - about $600k more than the second biggest winner of the day: Denoking.
Despite winning $1.57 million earlier this month and $811k on Monday, he's still down $2.1 million this year or $8.5 million since highstakesdb started tracking online results. He definitely needs to make some big changes in his game if he wants to become a successful winning player online.

| Hansen is keeping the right way, good for him. I like to see him playing, his style at the tables reflects a lot of what general good players tend to do, although at lower values.|

| jeez,after those two very nice wins he's still down $8.5 million,i think he should stay away from online play.|

| The guy is on a lucky streak as of late,.... Good for him! I can't think of a more deserving person to rake in a few bucks for his efforts!|
I like his style of play,....and you don't see him making a fuss or a spectacle of himself at the tables.....

| "He definitely needs to make some big changes in his game if he wants to become a successful winning player online" if even Gus isn't a winning player then i really don't know who can say is a winning online player, that people who play at micro-stakes for rake? wonder if he play with own money or with "virtual" money from FTP??? don't think FTP let him risk his own money.|

| He is maybe 8 million down since they start tracking online results, but I am confident he made a lot more in high-stacks private games so far... Glad to see him back with at his best |

| Keep crushing Gus, one of the players that I really like, he is good and i hope he bags in more profit.|
Well if the report about loss is true still he is making money from sponsorship deals. Which should amount for something if he keeps playing high stakes!

| Haven't seen Gus playing ft of events lately , kinda miss seeing him play. He's one of my favourite players, lots of funky moves and always very hard to read. 800k its already a VERY respectable number but somehow I would expect more from him. Maybe we'll hear more from him till the end of the year let's see.|

| Gus Hansen has always been one of my favourite players, so when i read this it made me happy. He seems to have been on a long losing run so kudos to him for turning this around. Keep it up gus|

| It is great that Hansen is one of the last ft stars now. And his profit at the hu tables are unbelievable. But how good was his statistic longterm? In the past with the ft crisis i´ve heard that a lot of popular ft stars are nearly bankrupt. Hansen was a verry sympatic player and ist nice to hear this good news about him|
