Gus Hansen Takes a Beating at the Full Tilt Online Poker Tables
Full Tilt might have announced their latest software update, but it seems that the turn of the new month wasn’t the best for Gus Hansen after he suffered a beating on the Full Tilt Omaha tables.
Those who sat down with ‘The Great Dane’ included David Benyamine, Ilari Sahamies, “luckexpress10” and “theASHMAN103”, who joined Hansen on the 200/400 Pot Limit Omaha tables – a game well known for its wild swings.
The four players mentioned above took around $700,000, although the losses were limited after Hansen won two of the biggest pots of the night, both from fellow Scandinavian Sahamies. The biggest, which came to $171,000, saw Sahamies flop a set and get the money into the middle, only to find he’d been drawing dead to Hansen’s flopped full house. That pot, along with the third biggest of the night, kept Hansen on the good side of a $1m loss – if such a thing as a ‘good side of losing $1m’ actually exists.
