Gus Hansen, NEKOTYAN and Ziigmund big winners

Thursday, 26 August 2010

It's not often that we've been able to write about a great session for Gus Hansen this month but he had just that yesterday, showing a profit of $167k. The Danish superstar went from the bottom of the leader board to the top after dominating the seven game on Full Tilt. He's still in the red for August overall but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

The other big winners on the day were NEKOTYAN who was up over 300k and Ziigmund who continued his recent good run with a profit of almost $268k. deprimiert also had a fine day, running up a 258k profit in the $2k/$4k limit hold em game. Somewhat surprisingly most of that money came from Phil Ivey who ended the day down $147k. It's still been a highly profitable month for Ivey though who is up to the tune of well over half a million dollars.

The biggest loser on the day was Patrik Antonius. The Finn dropped $668k in some extremely volatile Omaha Hi Lo games. Cole South was the main beneficiary of Antonius's largesse but losses in the other games left CTS in the can by around $150k.
