Three Players Currently Stand Between Gus Hansen And His First World Series of Poker BraceletPublished on September 23rd, 2010 6:52 am EST
When it comes to notable poker players who have never been able to win a World Series of Poker bracelet, Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius are at the top of the list.
Both players have millions of dollars in lifetime tournament cashes, but neither player has been able to win a coveted World Series of Poker bracelet as of yet.
Gus Hansen has over $7.5 million in total lifetime tournament cashes and three World Poker Tour titles. Despite all of his success on the tournament circuit, Hansen has not been able to take down a WSOP event up until this point. As a matter of fact, he hasn't even come close - prior to his deep run this week in the WSOPE heads-up event, Hansen's best finish in a WSOP event was ninth place in the 2009 $50,000 HORSE event.
Gus Hansen will be looking to change that on Thursday afternoon when the final day of the 10k NLHE High Roller Heads-Up event gets underway at the World Series of Poker Europe.
The original field of 103 players has been narrowed down to just four - Hansen, Ram Vaswani, Andrew Feldman and Jim Collopy.
In order to win his first World Series of Poker bracelet, Gus Hansen will first need to defeat Andrew Feldman and then dispatch of the winner of the Jim Collopy/Ram Vaswani match in the finals.
All four players are guaranteed a minimum of 96k pounds for making it to the final four, with the eventual winner of the event taking home 288,409 GBP.
Can Gus Hansen finally get the monkey off his back and take down his first World Series of Poker bracelet? We'll find out in a few short hours..
