He was the "Comeback Kid" at the start of 2010.  Having been down a few million dollars coming into this year, Gus Hansen managed to become one of the winningest online poker players.

That all changed this past weekend. 

Hansen lost a whopping $556k in a mere 6 hour period playing on Full Tilt Poker.  He has cut his profits for this year in half.

From Poker Listings:

The session began with Hansen sitting alongside Di "Urindanger" Dang for 176 hands at $500/$1,000 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha. By the end of the match, Dang hand earned over $57,000 before logging off for the night.

Up next came Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, who waged all out battle against the Great Dane for nearly three hours.

The match proved to be a complete disaster for the Full Tilt pro as Hansen proceeded to lose $375,282 to Sahamies over 686 hands.

Up a total of $453,459, Sahamies logged out of the site opening the door for Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin, the next in line to take a shot at one of the world's most popular high-stakes action players.

Griffin only stuck around for just 40 minutes, but still managed to book $150k in profit over his 120 hands.

Ultimately, Hansen managed to win a little money back from Tom "Durrrr" Dwan.
