More and more members of the poker community are wondering: When will Gus Hansen hit bottom? Is Gus Hansen’s poker career over?
Apparently not! No matter the losses, the Dane is still playing nosebleeds poker on Full Tilt. And yet again, he is losing big. Only two days have passed since the beginning of the new month and Hansen is down over $1 million, according to HighStakesDB. He played 14 sessions so far in November and 3,476 hands. Thirteen of those sessions were played at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables. And only one session involved a different poker game: Fixed Limit Omaha 8-or-Better. But what a session: -$375,698 in 304 hands. Overall, he lost $13,818,219 on Full Tilt since May 2007.
German pro Nicklas “ragen70” Heinecker was one of the players who took Hansen’s money. In fact, he had a big day yesterday playing only 2-7 TD and rebounded after starting the month down almost 300k. Heinecker played 16 hours on the 2nd of November and 2,256 hands, winning over 860k. He leads the November biggest online poker winners with a $577,241 profit. Unlike Hansen, Heinecker is having a terrific year sticking close to Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and winning $3,801,540 in over 49k hands. He also hammered down other big names yesterday at 2-7 TD besides the Danish pro, including Blom and Patrik “FinddaGrind” Antonius.
Isildur1 is the second biggest poker winner in November with $382,020. The Swede started off the month with a 300k win by playing Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em, 2-7 TD, FLO8 and also some mixed games. He battled with unknown poker player “RealMonies” at NLHE, which produced two of the biggest pots in November. In one pot, RealMonies three-bet pre-flop after a 3x open raise by Blom; he then check-raised Isildur1 as a bluff and his opponent smooth-called. The turn brought an overbet-shove by the unknown with an open-ending straight-draw. The Swedish pro called with a set of sixes and won over 174k. In another pot, the roles were reversed: Blom attacked three streets with a semi-bluff and RealMonies called all the way with a set of threes for a 150k profit.
Russian Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn and unknown German player “kagome kagome” are next in the winners list. Kostritsyn cashed in $324,532 in the last two days, while the German won $211,737. Both of them played only 2-7 TD so far this month.
