Gus Hansen

His successes were match in season 2 of WPT where he scooped the Pokerstars Caribbean Poker Adventure and The Bad Boys of Poker event.

Gus originates from Denmark. His game style is one of the most exciting, he plays hands no-one else would - and wins most of the time. He plays the players and the cards. He calls hands that noone would normally play "having a Gus".
