On Friday, March 9, Danish poker pro Gus Hansen posted on his Instagram account that he's in the legendary Bobby's Room at the Bellagio playing with other high-stakes poker pros with stakes going to the levels of $1,500/$3,000!
As poker fans are usually not allowed to take snapshots or take a video record of any high-stakes poker action going inside Bellagio's Bobby's Room, lucky for them that Gus Hansen is in there and has posted up many photos and videos from Bobby's Room in the past few days.
Based from the pictures and videos he had posted via Instagram, Gus ‘The Great Dane' Hansen has been playing with other famous poker players like Andrew ‘good2cu' Robl, Doyle Brunson, Daniel ‘jungleman' Cates, David Oppenheim, and Elior ‘Crazy Elior' Sion.
The Bobby's Room is host to some of the highest-limit poker action in the world, and the games usually have at least a $20,000 minimum buy-in.
Update on Gus Hansen's Poker After Dark 2018 appearance
On Wednesday, March 7, Gus Hansen returned at Poker After Dark (he was last seen there in 2010), and as what poker fans love about him, The Great Dane has played quite a few massive PLO pots.
He appeared on the second and final day of "Racks of Lamb", a week that's named after high-stakes pro Ben Lamb. The segment featured a $100/$200 pot-limit Omaha with a mandatory $400 straddle before the stakes doubled to $200/$400 with a mandatory $800 straddle later in the game. The action was televised by PokerGO.
Aside from Gus Hansen and Ben Lamb, other poker players present were Brian Rast, Chris MacFarland, Len Ashby, Matt Kirk, and Sam Soverel. It was Ben Lamb who got the largest profit at the table (over $250,000) on the previous day.
PokerGO posted in their Twitter feed many incidences of the biggest hands, and most of them involved none other than Hansen himself. While Danish pro really did cause some headaches for his opponents, it was an up and down rollercoaster for him as well.
