Hansen Makes a Cool Million

by Poker Team

Aggressive Dane Gus Hansen scooped over $1.1 million in less than 24 hours yesterday, playing Pot-Limit Omaha on Full Tilt Poker. His victims were Tom Dwan “Durrrr” and Ilari ‘Ziigmund’ Sahamies, the latter of which is known for his fierce dislike of the Great Dane. Ziigmund, who has a reputation of being a hothead on the Full Tilt tables, has been involved in frequent spats with Hansen concerning his supposed ‘luck’, and sometimes reckless style. Nevertheless, it was Sahamies who was fried into Danish bacon, along with online hotshot Dwan. Hansen owed some of his profits to good fortune, however. In a significant pot against Dwan, Hansen secured a mammoth $190,394 pot as his flopped set of 10’s managed to hold up against Dwan’s straight and nut flush draw.
