Gus Hansen Profile

Gus Hansen is widely considered one of the best poker players in the world.

Although he has never won a World Series of Poker bracelet, he has won three World Poker Tour titles, the 2007 Aussie Millions and was the season one winner of the Poker Superstars Invitational Tournament.

Before turning pro in 1997, Hansen was a world class backgammon player and a youth tennis champion.

In 2000, he moved to New York and tried to make a living playing professional backgammon, but found the field too small.

Hansen describes himself as a professional gambler and has been involved in several poker business ventures including PokerChamps.com, now Betfair Poker, ThePlayr.com and GusHansenTV.
