Gus Hansen to take a sabbatical from poker

Gus Hansen to take a sabbatical from poker

Tuesday, 22 December 2009

It isn’t just Durrrr and Isildur1 who have seen massive swings to their bankrolls this year. The nosebleed online action hasn’t been kind to Gus Hansen in 2009 either. According to the High Stakes Database the Dane has lost a whopping $5.3m in online action this year.

Writing on his blog, Hansen said that he was going to take a break from the game. He’ll use the time back in his native Denmark to recharge his batteries, study hand histories and completely restructure his game with the intention of coming back in 2010 new and improved.

2009 hasn’t been all bad for Hansen though. The 35-year-old was unlucky to finish runner up behind Huck Seed in this year’s Late Night Poker and also reached the final table of the $50k H.O.R.S.E event at the World Series.
