Heavy weekend for Gus Hansen

Tags: Cole South, gus hansen, high stakes.
Posted on 03 August 2009 by "T".

Things are not going Gus Hansen's way lately. The usual flow in his way of playing poker is far gone. Not to talk about his usual "luck". Last weekend he lost around 1.4 million dollars. All this money, mainly lost to these 2 players - Cole South and Brian Hastings. The game these three played was Pot Limit Omaha, and it stood clear from the beginning that someone is going to win big...and someone is going to lose big. The big loser came to be, Gus Hansen. Gus simply couldn't get anything going this time and another big losing session was soon a fact. The biggest pot played was between Gus Hansen and Cole South. It landed on the stunning amount of $446,583 and Cole South won it with a nut flush. Let's hope that Gus Hansen will get back in shape as soon as possible. Because he's for sure one of the most entertaining high stakes players to watch.

Hey mr. Hansen!
How big is your bankroll?
Do you do bankroll management?
How do you earn your living playing against big guys all the time?

Cole South had a bad 2008 but seems to be recovering this year. Gus Hansen is not the best oponent to someone who is thinking in winning big, but this time it worked out fine! Congrats to Cole and lets hope Gus to come to the winning siede again!

Where is the Gus we used to know? The one who was hungry for winning sessions... whatever it was MTTs or high stakes poker... Shock come on Gus Dollar Dollar Dollar

Whats luck got to do with it when you act like a calling station, you'll surely lose money. hope he can recover and start winning again.
