One can only imagine how much Hansen has lost over the winter and hope that it doesn’t compare to the $20 million he has dumped online over the years. It was certainly enough not to want to jump into action against Kirk who apparently is getting a reputation as somewhat as a mark in these games. Unless of course you ask Leon Tsoukernik

The comments in the video indicate that it is indeed true that Kirk won around half a billion dollars with Bitcoin - yes you read that right, billion, not million. While he might not be as skilled as most who frequently inhabit Bobby’s Room, he can certainly afford to mix it up for a while.
