Gus Hansen Recovers Some of his Poker Losses

Danish poker pro Gus Hansen, is said to be down $20 million in online high stakes poker games but managed to recover a bit over the weekend with $636,000 in winnings.

Hansen took $528,000 on fixed limit Omaha Eight or Better games on Sunday, most of which came from French nosebleed player Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau.

He still has a long way to go to recover all he has lost. According to the High Stakes Database Hansen is down $5.2 million just this year as a result of major losses in draw games, Pot Limit Omaha, Eight Game and Mixed H.A.

    I can really associate with the guy he must have felt so relieved that his bad run was finally turning around, I've played a hell of a lot of on-line poker and sometimes it really does feel that the bad beats are never ending and that the card rooms are rigging the deck against you personally (lol) .... of course its silly!

    If I have that kind of many,$20m million, I'll enjoy life to the fullest. You already have that money why risk it. But I guess there are people who gets the kick playing high risk, risking everything for the thrill. I just hope Gus will be able to recover all his loses, but when one wins another one loses. :)

    Not to be mean of something like that but I hope to lose 20 mil $ in a year, one day. I hope these losses are money from other poker tournaments, because WOW, most people don't spend, with all their family members, this much money in a life time. Good luck to you in the future Gus Hansen, i'm rooting for you!

    A loss of $20 million is easy to lose in high limits, but retrieving , it is very difficult, and requires time. Even if you have the money that Gus has.

    Obviously he had very bad year...like myself : ) Many people says- if I have 20 million will never risk them,but the man have 20 mil. Because he is a poker player - that is hes day job. He can't quit like that. Yes maybe he is a risky player and sometimes he will loose a lot but in a good day or year things can quickly turn around.

    I'm sure that he'll soon manage to recover more and more regard to its huge loss, I also admit that luck wasnt by his side, Gus Hansen remains a great poker player eitherway!

    Nice one Armage, i'm the same, feel like hitting something after a 20$ lost, don't imagine how i'd feel after a 20 million one lol. And yeah, some people don't realize when to stop.. i mean, you're used to an excentric life style, used to having money, betting every day, nobody says you're not, but flushing 20 mil's down the toilet.. that's too much. Oh well.. the world has enough problems as it is now, maybe he thinks of donating in the future, not playing it all.
