About Gus Hansen

Biography

Gus Hansen is the highest-earning Danish live poker player and one of the most famous names in modern poker. He has many live tournament victories, including 3 titles in WPT and a WSOP bracelet. Before becoming a professional poker player, Hansen was a backgammon player and was active in competitive tennis in his youth.

 

In 2004, the Dane was voted one of the 50 sexiest men by People magazine.  He has since entered another, less prestigious ranking - that of the biggest online losers, and reportedly lost nearly $15 milion on Full Tilt Poker in 2013 and 2014. In October 2014 it was announced that his sponsorship contract with Full Tilt Poker would not be renewed.
