Gus Hansen Loses $345,000 at High Stakes Tables

Gus Hansen’s turbo-charged winning streak seems to finally be slowing down as the year nears its halfway point. He just won $686,000. However, he lost most of that at another session just a few nights ago. The painful thing about his loss is that he acquired it only in the span of 481 hands.

Big Swings

Gus Hansen had an amazing weekend. He won a very impressive $686,000 at Full Tilt Poker, proving that the site can still be hugely profitable, especially for high rollers, even after the Black Friday incident. However, all that money was reduced greatly when Gus Hansen entered the high stakes tables this week and clashed swords with Kagome Kagome and Seb86, both of them quite formidable foes. Kagome Kagome earned $177,000 from Hansen and Seb86 earned $168,000. Kagome Kagome might not sound very familiar to most people, but he’s actually IHateJuice who just changed his old name a few months ago. Apparently, he has gotten over that ‘name changing’ curse and is now back on his feet and winning. He’s doing it at the expense of Gus Hansen, though. But the loss, though quite big, didn’t really put much of a dent on Hansen’s total wins. He’s still up by $3 million and is certainly still in the running for top online player for 2011.

High Stakes Action Continues

Full Tilt may be the best site for high stakes poker games, but with Blom in PokerStars, things are beginning to heat up there as well. Viktor “Isildur1” Blom has been getting quite a lot criticism because his performance has been less than impressive after he transferred to PokerStars, but the recent session with Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane were battling it out at the high stakes tables, putting in a monster session that spanned 3,075 hands. They were pretty much matched, but it was Isildur1 who ended up with a victory of $90,000, proving that he’s still a very formidable foe. This victory of his allows him to breakeven with his wins and losses, meaning he’s no longer in the negative. Still, it’s a bit lonely not seeing the other regulars at the high stakes tables like Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey. Still, though, the WSOP isn’t too far away now, so we’ll get some more premium action soon enough. We don’t even have to wait long at all.
