Last year Gus Hansen was losing a lot of money to Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond at the Omaha tables at Full Tilt Poker. But at the beginning of 2009 it has been a completely different story. Yesterday they could be found playing at their usual PLO tables at Full Tilt Poker and it was Gus Hansen who continued his winning streak in 2009. In fact seven out of the ten largest pots were won by Gus Hansen.
The Great Dane ended the session with a $613.000 profit and most of the winnings came from Phil Galfond and Hac "trex313" Dang. The only game they were playing was Pot Limit Omaha which seems to be the most popular game amongst the high stakes players.
Galfonds start to 2009 has been the complete opposite of the one of Gus Hansen as he is down around $500.000 for the year. Even though this is peanuts for a player like Galfond it is still not the start he would have wished for.
