Gus Hansen’s Chinese Poker Marathon Eases Pain of Barcelona Bustout
17 Apr

The partypoker Barcelona Grand Final may have had some famous names running deep in the Main Event, but Gus Hansen unfortunately wasn’t one of them, so it was back to his seemingly new love of Chinese poker for the Great Dane

…taking on Niki ‘KaiBuxxe’ Jedlicka in a lengthy ‘home game’, the Austrian’s profile on well-worth a read, with Hansen’s Chinese poker marathon not even stopping for dinner…

Hansen didn’t seem to put out by his dismissal from the main event, and was in good company, Patrik Antonius also hitting the rails too early for their huge fanclub…

… short of the money in a tournament which saw Stephen Chidwick and Dominik Nitsche flying the final table flag for the high-roller element…

….but even they couldn’t stop the mad run of Canadian Pascal Lefrancois who took down the €1,700,000 ($2.1million)

Back to Hansen and his much-heralded return to the tables, the legendary Danish pro may not have cashed in a live tournament since 2014 according to the Hendon Mob, but he’s certainly been active in some of the biggest games around the world this year…

…and it’s surely only a matter of time before Hansen’s luck at the cash tables turns into a big tournament score somewhere. In the meantime, Chinese poker seems like a good way to ease the pain… and Gus can even teach you how to play!
