Danish poker pro Gus Hansen has decided to take some time off after losing $5.3 million in 2009, the announcement made before Christmas. 

Hansen is the only player to win three World Poker Tour (WPT) open tournaments. 

Hansen finished in the money of the 2004 World Series of Poker main event, and also made the final table of a European Poker Tour (EPT) event in Barcelona.

He may be best known to Gambling911.com readers for his fight (boxing match) with fellow Dane poker pro Theo Jorgensen, which took place earlier in 2009 at the Copenhagen EPT.

Hansen has struggled with money problems, reportedly because of losses during live cash games.  Hansen is a regular in the The Big Game normally held in "Bobby's Room" at the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas. He has said that his losses aren't a secret and has admitted to losing a million or so at a couple of games. He also admits to being a perennial loser in sports betting, so much so that he wishes he could stop.
