Gus Hansen has surpassed $20 million in all-time career losses after yet another disastrous week at Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed tables. Hansen has lost approximately $920k this month alone, bringing his losses this year to $5.5 million!
Funnily enough, he's the biggest winner ever in Stud cash games and has $11.2 in live tournament cashes, which puts him in 19th place on the all-time money list. However, it's hard to ignore the fact that he's by far the biggest loser online since HSDB started tracking results (2007). Where does he get his money from? Well, he used to be a shareholder in Full Tilt Poker prior to Black Friday, he was a world-class backgammon player, and he used to own an online poker site that was sold for $15,000,000 in 2005. Besides that, he has probably won some decent money in big cash games in Macau etc.
But the question is, what keeps him motivated playing online poker when he's constantly losing? Feel free to discuss here on the forum. Below is a graph of Gus's results (Full Tilt Poker).
