Gus was joined by the 'Jungleman' Dan Cates, Timofey 'Trueteller' Kuznetsov and David Oppenheim for a spot of $1k/$2k PLO at the highstakes room in the Bellagio.

No word on who was winning this time, but it wasn’t long before we knew who was losing thanks to Scott SeiverJungleman’s lucky dice no help as the going got tough.

When Gus is in town, he’s the most regular of regs at the most famous table in poker. So far this month we’ve seen all the gents named above, as well as Doyle Brunson and Sweden’s Mikael Thuritz, among the stars to challenge the Great Dane.

Thuritz and Oppenheim may not be the best-known names to the general poker public, but both have beasted the highest stakes for a long time now.

Thuritz made the online nosebleeds look like a walk in the park under his ChaoRen160 nickname, while Oppenheim has more than two decades of live highstakes cash game experience, inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame last year alongside Chris Moneymaker.

With New Year just around the corner, we ca rely on Gus to bring us the inside scoop on the big Bobby’s Room winners!
