just wonder how many such "incredible" years can Gus bankroll withstand...
@Bastian2607- yeah stars is always the winner in the end- no matter who is winning money or losing it on the felts, stars are always on the winning side off the felts. that's life- they own the system, meanwhile players are just part of that system

This list confirms a tendency: when someone loses, always lose more than win. And looking at the value Gus Hansen lost, one can see it passes way above the value Ben Sulsky won. At a first thought, one could say the will to try to recover from the losses made G.Hansen lose even more, that’s why the value is so high, but I think this “rule” only applies to amateurs. G.Hansen will have to wait to see if the number 13 of this year brings him luck…

Unbelievable how much money you can win at poker, but here we see again how much money you have to invest.
I also hope to someday be able to finance a small monthly income also by poker

Now this is what I call a very good wish, giving a hope to all of those around here who plays higher amounts and even for those, like me, who play lower but sometimes like to give a shot on a satellite trying to reach a bigger event. One never knows what can happen, and there’s nothing wrong in dreaming and keep trying to reach a position like that. Be happy, be patient at the tables and be secure that you will finish well!

Good day everyone Smile
A Very good year for a few and bad for a few !!

That's the irony when winner cannot rise without a loser !! a good list but the players i thought who would make in a profitable list are on the wrong side especially dwan and hansen !! i had a regard that they play really good !! but they were outclassed by players who were more good than themselves Smile

Good luck at the tables Thumbs Up Thumbs Up
