Gus Hansen had a really thought time last year. In total he lost about $5.5 million dollars. 2010, however, has started in the best possible way for the Dane. Even though there are almost another 2 weeks to go of January, he has already won about $800,000! Thanks to this great achievement, he's now the player who has won the most this year. If Gus continue playing this good, it's very possible that he gets back on track and makes up for money he lost last year.

Tom Dwan keeps on losing
Not all high stakes players have had as good start of the new year as Gus Hansen. Tom "durrrr" Dwan is one of them. Dwan has lost $365,000 so far and it seems like he needs to take a break and look over his own game before he can become a winning player again.


Good start to the New Year for Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a very hard time at the poker tables last year as he lost more than $5,5 million dollars, and probably another few millions in sportsbetting. Even though Gus probably can afford to lose this much and still play high stakes, he deiced to take a break and look over his own game. It seems like this break really has paid off, because 2010 has started in the best possible way for "The Great Dane."

Between 1 and 3 January, Gus Hansen has won over $200,000 in less than 600 hands. It seems like he has changed something in his game and is really hungry for revenge. However, it will for sure take a couple of months before we get to know whether or not Gus Hansen is going to be a big winner this year.



Hard times for Gus Hansen

It's very hard times for Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen at the moment. Nothing is working out the way he wants, and he keeps on losing big. Gus Hansen, has lost over 4.8 million dollars at Full Tilt poker since April this year. One can't even imagine how it feels after losing so much money. Many people probably have asked themselves this question many times: Why don't poker players that have earned many millions of dollars stop playing when they have enough money to live the rest of their lifes in nothing but luxury?

The answer to that question in Mr. Gus Hansen's case is for sure his love for the game of poker and also because the kick he gets from playing on the highest stakes with lots of people watching him. We can be sure of one thing however. There is not a chance in the whole world that Gus Hansen will stop playing at the highest stakes until he has made of for all the losses.

We are looking forward to more action at the high stakes tables at Full Tilt poker this week.
