Gus Hansens $219,000 High-Stakes 7-Game Win at Full Tilt Poker

Poker pro Gus Hansen's decision to migrate to the high-stakes Seven-Game has proven to be an excellent decision so far after losing millions of dollars on the Texas Hold'em and Omaha poker tables. Since moving to high-stakes 7-Game, the Danish poker pro has managed to keep his losses to a minimum and even take home a few profits.

Hansen has earned almost $400,000 for the month of October. Although more than half of those earnings came from the mixed-game poker table on Full Tilt poker on October 12th, 2009, where Hansen won a total of $219,000 and was the night's largest winner. Surprisingly, considering where the high-stakes 7-game have move from, the "Great Dane's" biggest cash pot came during Pot-Limit Omaha.

Gus Hansen decided to place it all in on the turn with his top pair and flush draw against the straight draw and lower pair of Ziigmund's. In the end, Hansen received top two from the river and the $114,000 cash pot. The other notable results for the night included poker players Patrik Antonius ($162,000) and Abe "EazyPeazy" Mosseri ($191,000).

But regardless of the other large wins posted, the game did see some big losses like DIN_FRU, who topped the list of losses, losing more than $363,000. Full Tilt regular 458854 came in 2nd place with a $344,000 loss while John Juanda lost more than $193,000.
