While poker pro Theo Jorgensen was declared the winner in Saturday's much ballyhooed Denmark clash with Gus Hansen, many in the poker community who watched the bout online believed that Hansen should have prevailed.

"It was an ugly looking fight no doubt about that. .... but i thought Gus was ahead in the first 2 rounds and Theo got the third. Didn't think Theo should have won," declared one member of the Two Plus Two posting forum community.

In fact, 47 percent of those surveyed at that site believed that Hansen would win.  Jorgensen, however, was the favorite to win amongst oddsmakers who took bets on the fight. 

Around 3000 people were expected to attend the fight in Copenhagen. 

Both poker players are friends and the bout coincided with the launch of Hansen's new Web venture, GusHansenTV.com.

Gambling911.com contributor, Thomas Somach, once insulted the entire country of Denmark after bashing Hansen.

"Danish poker pro Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen is truly a great poker player, having won nearly six million dollars in career poker tournament earnings. But when it comes to running a website-even one about poker-he is just as inept as the next clown who thinks anyone can sit down at a computer and create and operate a successful website."

That may have been perceived as a back handed compliment to Hansen, but Somach's critique of Denmark could be interpreted as nothing other than a back handed slap.

"Gus, you come from a country best known for pastry and a stupid mermaid statue."

Somach has been banned from entering the country.
