Gus Hansen’s 2009 began roughly this week as he dumped just over $250k while playing over the first two days of the year. Gus’ troubles began when he took on trex313 heads up on two mixed Hold’em/Omaha tables for an hour and a half. At the end of the match, Hansen was down just over $150k.

The first noteworthy pot between the two was an Omaha hand in which trex313     raised from the button to $3k. Hansen then reraised to $9k and trex313 made the call to see the flop of Qh 8c Ad. Hansen led out for $7k and had trex313 call behind. The turn came the 6c and Hansen bet out $32k. With just less than $23k chips remaining, trex313 made the call and showed Tc Qc 2s 7h for a pair, a gutshot straight draw, and a flush draw. Hansen flipped over 9h 6d 8h 9c and would have to dodge a lot of cards on the river to survive. The river brought the 2d which gave trex313 a higher two pair and the win in the nearly $80k pot.

The next big Omaha hand came shortly after and began the same as the last, with trex313 raising from the button to $3k and Hansen reraising to $9k. Once again trex313 made the call and the flop came 6h Qc Qh. Hansen led out the flop for $7k once again and trex313 called behind to see the Jc fall on the turn. Hansen again bet, this time $22k and trex313 once again called behind. The river came the 7s and Hansen checked the action to trex313 who pushed all in for nearly $50k. Gus Hansen then thought it out and decided it was best to fold, giving trex313 the $76k pot without a showdown.

The two continued to play big Omaha pots as the next one totaled over $76000. trex313 raised from the button to $3k and Hansen called from the big blind to see the flop of 4h Jd 8h. Hansen bet out $4k and trex313 called behind to see the turn which brought the 4c. Hansen bet out $10k this time only to have trex313 shove all in behind him, pushing it up to slightly over $31k. Hansen called and showed Ts 4s 6d 7h for three of a kind and a double gut shot straight draw. trex313 turned over Ac Jc 9d 9h and needed to hit one of the remaining jacks or nines to win the pot. The river smacked Hansen in the face though, dropping the 9s onto the board and giving trex313 the full house and yet another big win.

The game then moved to Hold’em and Hansen had to be hoping he would fare better than he had in Omaha. In one of the first big Hold’em pots, trex313 raised from the button to $3k and Hansen made the call to see the flop of Ah 3h 6c. Hansen led out into trex313 with a bet of $4k but was quickly reraised to $13k. Gus made the call and the turn came the Ks. Both players checked through to see the Qs fall on the river. Hansen led out once again for $24k only to have trex313 shove all in, which pushed it up to nearly $60k. Hansen didn’t have enough to make the call though and trex313 took down the $80k pot without a showdown.

The next Hold’em hand brought the biggest pot between the two so far. trex313 raised from the button to $3k and Hansen reraised to $9k. trex313 called the reraise and the flop came 9d 5c 3h. Hansen put out a $10k continuation bet and trex313 called behind. The 8d came on the turn and both players checked through to see the Th come on the river. Hansen then bet out again, this time for $26k and trex313 called. Gus turned over Qs 8s for a pair of eights and trex313 showed Jh Tc for a pair of tens and took down the $90k pot.

The next big Hold’em hand saw both players get it all in the middle preflop. After all the raising was done the pot totaled just under $70k and trex313 showed 9d 9h which was flipping with Hansen’s Kc Ad. The flop came 3h 5h 6s and didn’t help Hansen at all. The turn was the 4c and it was down to six outs for Gus. The river was again no help with the 8c and trex313 took down yet another giant pot.

The next big pot between the two was a Hold’em hand worth nearly $100k. trex313 raised to $3k from the button and Hansen repopped it to $9k. trex313 called the reraise and the flop came Td 5h 9d. Hansen put out a continuation bet of $12k only to have trex313 reraise behind him enough to put Gus all in. Gus called off the $28.5k he had left and turned over 4s 4h for a pair of fours. trex313 flipped over 8d Jd and needed to catch a jack, eight, seven, queen, or diamond to win the pot. The 2h came on the turn and didn’t change anything, however Hansen couldn’t dodge all those outs twice as the Js fell on the river and trex313 won the hand.
