Gus Hansen has taken a big step towards turning around his bad April results. The Danish Full Tilt pro returned to the tables last night, booking a fresh $600,000 win.
Gus Hansen was yesterday reported to have lost almost $1 million within the first week of April, but already now The Great Dane
seems to be on his way to recovering his losses.
According to numbers from Highstakesdb.com, Hansen was back in the action last night, playing both the favored PLO and the popular FL 2-7 Triple Draw games.
Especially the draw games would turn out to be a lucrative ordeal for Hansen, who managed to book a $450,000 from playing at the $1,500/$3,000 stakes against such skilled opponents as Patrik Antonius
and David Oppenheim
As if the $450,000 wasn't enough, Hansen would then move on to play more than 1,500 hands at the high stakes
PLO tables, and here he added another $120,000 to his winnings for the evening.
All in all, Hansen retired with a $570,000 plus, earning him the title as yesterday's biggest overall winner, at the same time leaving him above the $3.5 million profit mark for the year.
Another high stakes regular who has been extremely active recently is Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, who after a terrible start to the year secured himself more than $1.5 million in profit in March.
Galfond has since continued his good run at the online tables, but yesterday he had to face a serious setback as he dropped almost $500,000 in just 433 hands.
That being said, "OMGClayAiken" is still in in the black seen over the whole of the year, currently posting an overall profit of $584,424.
