A 37 year old Danish poker player, Mr. Gus Hansen, has been on an incredible winning streak playing online poker at the Full Tilt Poker, winning $999,480 this week alone at ‘heads-up’ matches, bringing his five month online total to $5,000,000 won. Just in the first 54 days of 2011, Mr. Hansen, also known as The Great Dane, won $3 million playing Pot Limit Omaha and Draw Poker. He is currently in first place in overall winnings in online poker cash games in 2011, with his closest competitor, Mr. Patrik Antonius far behind, yet still a winner of more than a million dollars since the start of the year.

During the last week, Mr. Hansen played over 2,500 hands of draw poker against some of the most aggressive whales of the online poker rooms, including Mr. Tom Dwan and Mr, Phil Galfond, and still walked away with a cool million.

Not too long ago, things were not so rosy for Mr. Hansen , who almost permanently quit playing poker last year after losing $5.55 million by early fall, and finishing the year with an overall loss of $1.3 million. That was the beginning of the lucky streak which he’s been on for the past five months, eventually leading to this week’s amazing weekly win, playing thousands of pots larger than most people’s yearly income.

Gus Hanses was one of the founding partners of PokerChamps online poker room, which was sold 20 months later to Betfair for $15 million dollars.

Mr. Hansen has been a gambler all his life, first becoming a world ranked backgammon player and then discovering poker to eventually win the European World Series of Poker bracelet in the ‘No Limit Hold’em High Roller Heads-Up’ $15,000 buy-in tournament. Over his lifetime, Mr. Gus Hansen won over 9 million dollars in live tournaments and is a regular player in the biggest poker cash games in Las Vegas and online.
