-- poker player gus hansen on a bit of a downswing --In mid-August, we wrote an article titled "Gus Hansen's $5 Million Dollar Downswing" (link below).

We wrote about Hansen's strong start in 2009 on Full Tilt Poker, and how he made approximately $3.2 million dollars over 84,494 tracked hands from January 1st to March 31st on the site.

From April 1st to August 12th, the wheels fell off for Hansen, as "The Great Dane" lost nearly $5 million dollars over a total of 93,975 tracked hands. Hansen's profits for the year had been obliterated in just a short period of time, and he now well in the red in 2009.

Hansen is known for his extreme variance, so many people were assuming that a big Gus upswing was just around the corner.

That didn't happen.

Instead, Hansen has dropped an additional $1.59 million dollars since August 12th, meaning that he is now down around $3.38 million dollars in 2009.

This performance makes Hansen the second biggest loser on Full Tilt Poker in 2009 behind Sami "LarsLuzak" Kelopuro (-$3.88 million dollars).

So, after getting off to a tremendous start in 2009 (+$3.2 million dollars in just three months), Hansen has seen his bankroll shrink by approximately $6.58 million dollars.

This $6.58 million dollars loss has come over a total of 130,437 hands, meaning that Gus has lost over $50 for every hand that he has played on FTP since April 1st.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Hansen can rebound from a horrific 2009 and return to profitability next year..
