He may still have a long way to go to make up for the substantial losses he has suffered over the past couple of months but this week has proved the perfect tonic to Gus Hansen's poor run of form.
Yesterday saw Gus take on the usual suspects at the PLO, FLO8 and 2-7 Triple Draw tables where he lost a little at the TD tables, won a little at PLO and won a huge sum at the Omaha Hi Lo tables. His biggest victim of the day was patpatpanda who lost over $260k in an FLO8 session yesterday evening at table plantation - following on from SallyWoo who also lost close to $150k to Hansen at the same table in two sessions.
There were other big winners at Full Tilt's limit tables yesterday as PostFlopAction took $248k at the triple draw tables, mainly from CRAIN85. We also saw another six figure day for Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau as he won $137.9k for the day - all his winnings coming from two sessions at the triple draw tables at table Coral Glow where he played 1Mastermind heads up, beating him for over $200k in these sessions. Luneau is now $600k up for the week so far at Full Tilt.
The final six figure winner of the day yet again came from the limit tables of Full Tilt as DealMeInFast won $104k over three tables of 2-7 Triple Draw.
The biggest winner over at PokerStars yesterday was also from the limit tables as Ville Wahlbeck won $60.9k at the $500/$1000 2-7 TD tables.
Yet again there were no six figure pots yesterday and despite there being both $100/$200 and $200/$400 PLO games running at PokerStars the biggest pot was less than $50k and was played out at the $50/$100 NLHE tables at PokerStars;
Good call on the river from Flufferd to take this $45.4k pot
