He returned to the tables on Monday and repeated the trick, adding almost the same amount to his roll when calling it quits at just after midnight.

According to the number crunchers at, Hansen has played 3,364 hands over the past 48 hours and is up $1,107,536.

Despite the latest upswing, Gus has dropped over $2.3m on the year to date and has is in the red in the big online games to the tune of $17m in total.
