Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan Climbs Back to the Top of Full Tilts Winners List

Last year's biggest losers were poker pros Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan. Now, just two weeks into the New Year, the two biggest losers of 2009 have made their way back to the top of the winners list.

After another game of nose-bleed high stakes 7-Game on Full Tilt on January 15th, 2010, Dwan had earned almost $400,000 in profit, enough to place him into 2nd place for the year's biggest winners with almost $530,000. Hansen made his way back into being the second most profitable poker player of the night-earning more than $383,000 for his effort.

This puts Hansen in first place overall for 2010 with $726,000. Richard Ashby came out of the session as the biggest loser, down more than $457,000 in his $2,315 hand session.

Despite playing more card hands than any other poker player to make the lists, Cole South became the night's second biggest loser with more than $264,000 in losses.

Fortunately for both Ashby and South, profits that they have made earlier in the year help keep them from being too far down in the rankings. One poker player who has struggled in the rankings has been Chau "La Key U" Giang.

Giang, known for his appearances in Bobby's room, has been somewhat in a consistent losing streak since the start of the year. Adding the $136,000 he lost on January 15th, 2010, Giang is on the top of the biggest losers list with more than $590,000 worth of losses for 2010.
