Is there a streakier player on Full Tilt Poker than Gus Hansen?
"The Great Dane" continued his wild fluctuations on Thursday, posting a one day gain of almost $500k on Full Tilt Poker. Much of this came in the $2000/$4000 Omaha Hi/Lo game, where Hansen posted a total one-day profit of $412k. This puts his total profits for the month of August at $386k. Hansen is the biggest winner on Full Tilt Poker since the beginning of July, having made a total of $1.52 million dollars, a full $500k more than his next closest competitor, "LoLiNa".
August has marked the return of many well-known faces to the "virtual" felt on Full Tilt Poker. Many of the top poker players have now returned after taking some time off following the World Series of Poker.
David Benyamine is back, and this is bringing the high-stakes Pot Limit Omaha games on the site back to life. Despite being probably the best PLO player in the world, many players love playing against him and the tables always fill up when he sits down. Benyamine is currently up almost $250k on the month, and currently sits with a total profit of $3.144 million dollars on the year.
Phil Ivey is back as well, and is currently sitting with a loss of $319k in August. Ivey had a high-stakes Pot Limit Omaha heads-up battle against "Ziigmund" earlier in the month, with "Ziigmund" getting the best of Ivey. Speaking of "Ziigmund", he is currently sitting with a profit of $557k on the month, and is also over a million dollars in profits since the first of July (+$1.033 million).
Tony G turned up on Full Tilt after a long absence and immediately notched a win of almost $200k. One can only hope that Tony G decides to make Full Tilt a more permanent home, as the games are certainly more lively when he is playing.
