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.

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