Poker Pro Gus Hansen:  ‘I Can’t Remember My Last Winning Session (Online)’

PokerListings.com recently sat down with Danish poker pro Gus Hansen, who has managed to lose a few million dollars this year alone.

The last time he won?

"Unfortunately lately I am mostly losing as I can’t remember my last winning session," he noted.

And he says, he is asking himself questions that keep him up all night

PokerListings: Let’s also talk about your online swings now. How do you even manage to go to sleep after your games? First you win millions, then you lose millions … and those numbers, man! – they are crazy.

Gus Hansen: I sleep better after a big win than after a big loss, I think that’s no secret. But yes, I've been doing a lot of losing lately and I've been frustrated.

I feel like I am missing something. Maybe I'm outdated. I used to be the biggest winner on Omaha HiLo while in the last six months I'm the biggest loser on Omaha HiLo.

So, I wonder: what happened in the mean time? I know I haven’t been running good but, at the same time, I don’t think I have been running THAT bad.

I am kind of questioning myself. I think every competitive player has to question himself at some point and ask 'has the game surpassed me? Am I rusty? Am I not good enough in this game anymore?'

I'm asking myself questions and that keeps me up at night. Especially when I go on a big losing streak as I am.

But then I've been gambling for 20 years. I've lost everything I had, I won a lot back and then I lost what I had again.

I'm doing pretty well even though my online results are indicating that I am not doing too well. I have other venues I play.

Like Ben Sulsky, I play all the games. If you get me a high-stakes backgammon player, I will play. If you give me an Open Face Chinese player – I will play.

If you give me a high-stakes poker game, chances are that I am going to play. I have different avenues to walk down. Sometimes I lose on the carousels but then I win on another round.

I'm kind of used to the big swings. Of course it’s more fun to win than to lose but then it’s kind of part of what I do.
