According to a Danish poker news site, Gus Hansen has once again returned to Macau and joined players such as Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Sam "tri1cky7" Trickett in games where millions of dollars can change owner in just a single hand.
The Danish news site has been in contact with Hansen ever since he arrived in Macau and they report that he has played in games as high as $1,3000/$2,600 with a $5,000 straddle. But things haven't gone so well for Mr. Hansen so far. A big chunk of Gus's losses is due to a hand against Tom Dwan in which he failed to bluff with a HK$1.7 million bet on the river.
"- 3 acres at 'durrrr' drawing dead. It's like regelt not a profitable way to go.
- I had planned it from the beginning, a continuation bet on the flop, followed by another bet on the turn, and when he called both bets would I give up on the river.
- 'Durrrr' called, but when the river was my considered opinion that he was on an Off topic-draw, and since I could not beat ace-high, I decided to send yet another bet going. A HK $ 1.7 million river-bluff, but a quick call from 'durrrr' sent all the chips in the wrong direction.
- The good news was that 'durrrr' actually had the draw-Off topic, but the bad news was that he also had a top pair. Oops,"
Gus told the Danish news site.
