The Aggressive Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen has been busy as of late, raising often and by far the most aggressive played on the secondary table. In a recent hand, Jason Mercier raised to 16,000 under the gun and was called by Paul Phua in the small blind and Gus Hansen in the big.

When the flop fell {8-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}, Hansen checked, Mercier continuation bet 19,000, Phua folded, and Hansen woke up with a check-raise to 44,000. Mercier made the call, but then mucked to Hansen's 69,000 bet on the {6-Spades} turn. Mercier did not look happy after the hand.
