Biggest winners and losers this year

Tags: Di Urindanger Dang, Gus Hansen, Hac trex313 Dang, Patrik Antonius, Tom Durrrr Dwan.

Some players have had a great start this year, some not so good start. But then there are also players like Gus Hansen that have lost a lot of money in just a few weeks, but still is up over $1.5 million dollars. Another notable player is Tom "Durrrr" Dwan that had a great 2008 and a not so good 2009 with a small minus of $500,000. But if he loses his own challenge against Patrik Antonius it will cost him another $1.5 million.

Gus Hansen is someone you won't find on the lower limits, no matter how good or bad he's doing. Gus had a great start this year with winnings over $3 million dollars, but this month he has already lost $1,6 millions. Even though this big loss he's still up $1.5 million dollars this year. That's how big the swings can be for the best high stakes players in the world. Patrik Antonius, the Finnish poker pro, is doing very well at the moment and is up $4 million dollars this year. Another player that is doing well at the moment is Mark Vos from South Africa. He's up $1.8 million this year.

One of the biggest losers this year and the biggest winners this year happens to be brothers. Di "Urindanger" Dang has lost over $1.8 million this year, but luckily for him is that his brother Hac "trex313" Dang has won over $2.6 million this year. Let's just hope that Hac will help his brother out if his losing streak continues.

They look so calm and collected when they bet 2-300K at a time. How do they do that?

Guy is. But it looks as he has stopped playing. (At least online)

Gus style is superswingy.

Yes Guy used to be the biggest fish but he hasnt played in like 6 months. All the high stakes regulars say Gus is the fish and the reason the games are going.

 Soumik23/04/2009 22:02:05 GMT
I thing when Gus hansen is very good Tournament player but in High stakes (full tilt etc.) he is very bad in this year... Sharks waiting to his table a few hours for stack him Smile

I agree Gus is fishy and super swingy. But because of these massive swings, he is still up 1.5 mill! Swings like that would likely give me a heart attack! haha. But these guys are so used to it and have such huge bankrolls, it likely doesn't faze them so much :O Gus probably makes up for a lot of the lost money in corporate sponsorships, advertising appearances, etc. It's pretty rediculous how much companies pay out to well-known pro's to use their names and faces to promote their stuff Tongue
