The Biggest Losers… In Online Poker


gus-hansenGus Hansen, aka the “Great Dane” is said to have amassed a massive $10.4 million in lifetime online poker losses, making him the biggest loser online. This year alone, his losses surpass the $4 million mark since returning as the main ambassador for Full Tilt.

Rumors that Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté is said to have lost more than $15 million online via various poker accounts have not officially been confirmed, though even if that were true, that is petty cash for the multi-billionaire.

One of the best poker players in the world, the 37 year-old Ivey has captured nine WSOP bracelets and amassed live winnings of $17,649,220. Ivey’s online cash record has been equally as impressive. With $19,242,744 in earnings playing under his own name at Full Tilt, he is considered online poker’s biggest ever winner.

rsz_3phil_ivey_avatarDespite being the biggest winner in online poker history, since Phil Ivey started playing on the re-launched Full Tilt Poker under his latest nickname “Polarizing”, he is currently down a whopping $3,232,426 with -$2,980,086 of that total coming in this year alone.

Ivey’s losses places him second on the list of this year’s biggest losers, behind Gus Hansen currently down $4 million.
