The huge Macau cash games have been one of the major talking points in recent times but one high stakes reg conspicuous by his absence has been Gus Hansen. That could be about to change though.
The Dane has just arrived in Hong Kong and after a brief stay in the former British colony will be heading to Macau later this week. Hansen wrote on his blog, “The more I think about it the less chance there is I will be playing in some million dollar buy-in No Limit Hold Em game in Macau – but maybe once I get there the good old bug called ‘Degenerate Gambling’ will get a hold of me and make me change my mind...We will see what tomorrow brings ;-)”The 2010 WSOPE Heads Up High Roller winner also speculated on who else might be in the Far East. "I am also wondering whether I will be bumping in to some former Full Tilt Pro’s? Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey and Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan to name a few that has been seen in the vicinity of Macau high stakes poker games."Hansen certainly has the bankroll to enjoy a tilt at the Macau big game. The 37-year-old enjoyed a great year at the online tables in 2011, topping the HighStakesDB.com money list with a yearly profit of $3.9m.For an idea of what Gus can expect from the Macau cash games read our latest interview with Sam Trickett.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
