Gus Hansen has disappeared from most poker involvement in recent times and his fans are curious about it. So what has he done so far in 2016?
Gus Hansen’s 2016 Live Results
Unfortunately there is not much to report here. Actually, there is nothing to report. The last time Gus Hansen cashed in a poker tournament was in 2014 where he made just over $17k at an EPT event in Vienna.
During the Full Tilt Poker Festival in 2013, Gus Hansen was quoted saying:
“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.”
This quote is proof that Hansen was aware of his diminishing ability, but wasn’t able to stop quick enough. This is something which can easily fuel rumors of Gus Hansen being broke.
