The big players and high rollers are going at it full steam ahead at Full Tilt Poker and large amounts are shifting hands with players winning and losing by the millions. This is one reason why the Full Tilt Poker site has always drawn player traffic and fascinated the poker community because it has big risk players who turn millionaires over night.

Gus Hansen, one of the most noted poker players playing online games at the newly restored Full Tilt Poker site does not have much in the bank to celebrate about. Hansen who is known to take big gambles and come out on the losing side occasionally, recently ended losing so much money that he earned himself a place in Full Tilt Poker’s biggest losers of the year list.

Hansen, who belongs to Full Tilt Poker’s professional poker team called The Professionals lost as much $1.5 million in one day. This loss has made Gus Hansen the biggest loser of the week at Full Tilt Poker and puts him in the top three biggest losers of the year.

Over the course of the week, Hansen has spilled a total of $1,829,404 in poker chips at the Full Tilt Poker site. He lost $1.5 million of this amount in one day and played as much as 13,111 hands of poker throughout the week. This worked up to a grand total of 71 sessions at the online poker room for Gus Hansen.

Meanwhile, the players at PokerStars seem to be playing better and more cautiously. The biggest loser at the PokerStars site was Rafi “refaelamit” Amit who lost a total of $461,949 in poker cash while playing 106 sessions which worked up to 14,757 hands. This is less than four times the amount that Hansen lost.

Hansen seems to be exhausting himself and perhaps this is why he is losing in bulk amounts; for instance, Hansen recently played right through an entire day going 27 consecutive hours on the Full Tilt Poker site.

Gus Hansen had tried his luck at online poker variants like $1,500 Triple Draw Poker and $3,000 2-7 Triple Draw at the Full Tilt Poker site. Surprisingly, Hansen won a sum of $300K while playing against “O Fortuna PLS” and won this amount in six hours, but did not choose to quit while h was ahead and then eventually triggered his losing streak. Other games that Gus Hansen also sat down for includes $200/$400 pot-limit Omaha and $2,000/$4,000 fixed-limit Omaha hi Lo.
