€100,000 Super High Roller

A Cameo Rather Than A Starring Role For Gus Hansen

• Nivel 11: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

As we detailed earlier Gus Hansen was a newcomer to the Super High Roller today, taking a seat with 250,000 chips some eight levels after everyone else. It had looked like a brilliant decision, especially after he doubled-up through Isaac Haxton, whose aces were undone by Hansen’s flopped straight.

But, the flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long. Whether your interpretation of that quote is from Lao Tzu, or from Blade Runner, it seems to sum up Gus Hansen’s day perfectly, or more accurately, his early afternoon, as the PokerStars Blog reports.
