Monday, Oct 20, 2008 Seat Reserved For Gus Hansen 24/7
Day and night, Full Tilt Poker holds a seat for Gus Hansen in the biggest game online, $500/$1,000 no limit holdem short handed. Players come and go, pots get huge.
The table is even named after him: GusHeaven. The usual suspects can be seen butting heads at his table: Patrik Antonius, David Benyamine, Tom 'durrrr' Dwan, Phil Ivey etc.
Gus Hansen's private seat
Gus Hansen turns up on a regular basis. When he's not there, his seat is left empty, always open for him to sit down.
Pots build up to extraordinary heights, making a meager $100,000 pot seem ridiculously diminutive.
Gus' seat is always reserved
LarsLuzak back in the game
And word gets around. The other day, the legendary Finnish high stakes player LarsLuzak (Sami Kelopuro), having been absent for a long time, appeared at Gus' table to claim his part of the super high online action.
Kelopuro came right into one of the biggest online pots during last week when he lost a $430k pot to David Benyamine.
But we're yet to meet a Fin who takes notice of such miniature hardship. Life goes on, as does the ultra high stakes game at Gus Heaven.
Antonius has his own seat too
Another fin, Patrik Antonius has his own reserved seat on a nearby table, RailHeaven. Also a six handed no limit holdem table with blinds at $500/$1,000.
Peek in at Full Tilt Poker to enjoy the action. If you feel frustration for not raking in those huge pots, you should be equally euphonious for not losing them.
