Gus Hansen loses $500,000 pot to King's Casino Owner

A week after Viktor ‘Isildur' Blom won the Main Event at the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany Main Event for $1,048,153, the high stakes cash games continued at the King's Casino Rozvadov, Czech Republic.

One of the players who decided to just immerse himself on the excitement that only juicy high stakes cash game action can bring and entirely skip all the tournament events at partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany is Danish poker pro Gus Hansen.

He had just recently returned to his home country Denmark and had published a short video blog on his Instagram account a couple of days ago.

According to the 44-year-old WSOP bracelet winner, his Rozvadov trip lasted for two weeks, and even though he lost the biggest pot of approximately $500,000 to King's Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik, he said he still managed to end his trip with a six-figure win.

The ‘Great Dane' now plans to head over to Austria to get some more of his favorite high-stakes cash game action.

It's great to see Gus Hansen playing and winning again. He has had a few lean years recently but it looks like he is getting his mojo back and i hope he can regain a few of his well documented losses

Gus Hansen did not appear in the poker news space for a very, very long time. Gass in one hand he lost $ 500,000 to Leon. Here such stability is pursued by Gus Hansen already for many years. Gas remained true to its main principle - to fill in large. Zukernik is certainly a very good player

It's sick to read that someone is able to lose half of million $... It's very demotivating for us - casual people...

Never thought will see him again in the tables after his lat results.
But according to this he managed to leave with six figures, which is a great amount of money
for just two weeks. He can relax the rest of the year now Smile

a huge pot even for professional gamblers. I think he will suffer a period of time until he relaxes. It's not easy to lose so much money with a big pot. I wonder what was in Tom Dwan soul when he lost 20 millions pot. Great suffering. Does not compare to the Gus Hansen pot but both of them had a shock with these pots, i think. Cool

Gus is a sick player in high stakes games so he will either win very big or lose very big at those tables and is it a good thing for him as a lose and aggressive player? I mean is it really profitable?

What I know for sure that I will never play at such stakes even if I will have that money Smile There's no point in that, you don't need to play poker for living while having millions- there are better and safer alternatives.

Gus was probably a good player when he was a very long time ago but now he should not sit down to play poker at big stakes .... his skill is far behind and now there are other people on poker Olympus .... and of course they use the opportunity to explain to Gus his place in the ranking
 Sandmanilo28/02/2018 19:16:35 GMT
If Gus Hansen is so bad, how come that he is considered as a poker pro? Maybe he plays with someone else's money? Smile Some sponsors can give him money to play because he's an attractive and interesting person, or to show viewers that fishy players can be met even at high stakes.
 CALICUL02/03/2018 14:30:01 GMT
pajalnick my friends any pro player has bad times in his career. It's not easy to resist in tournaments, to do a multitude of final tables and for a period of decades to stand only on top positions. It's too hard for any pro. All pro players will not succeed to resist a life only in the sky of poker. That does not mean that Gus Hansen no longer knows poker. He knows this game very well. Blink
