The Full Tilt pro removed close to $575k from the former CardRunners instructor’s bankroll in a more than 1,200-hand heads-up session that lasted until the wee hours of the morning Wednesday.
South emerged from a massive session in the Cap games Monday night with a better than $350k profit, mostly thanks to Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies.
However, he gave that back and more Tuesday, losing five of the seven $80,000 capped pots in the $500/$1,000 game with Hansen.
South, who once reigned over the 2010 high-stakes profit leaderboard with over $3.3 million in earnings, has now dipped under the $700k mark on the year.
In the meantime, Hansen, once dubbed a high-stakes fish, has climbed back up and over $700k in profits on the year.
Below are three capped hands from Tuesday’s heads-up session. To see more, head to our online poker stats page.
Nice flop for South’s hand.
Kings hold for Hansen..
The session began with Hansen sitting alongside Di “Urindanger” Dang for 176 hands at $500/$1,000 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha. By the end of the match, Dang hand earned over $57,000 before logging off for the night.
Up next came Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies, who waged all out battle against the Great Dane for nearly three hours.
The match proved to be a complete disaster for the Full Tilt pro as Hansen proceeded to lose $375,282 to Sahamies over 686 hands.
Up a total of $453,459, Sahamies logged out of the site opening the door for Ashton “theASHMAN103″ Griffin, the next in line to take a shot at one of the world’s most popular high-stakes action players.
Griffin only stuck around for just 40 minutes, but still managed to book $150k in profit over his 120 hands.
Hansen would find his final opponent for the session in Tom “durrrr” Dwan, and much to the dismay of the year’s current profit leader, the Great Dane finally managed to turn a small profit on the match.
Dwan finished his session down over $125k.
Hansen left the tables down $556,270, cutting his profits so far this year by more than half.
Below are three of the max-capped pots from yesterday’s sessions. To see more hands head to our online poker stats page.
Dang bluffed the flush which Hansen held.
Sahamies had about 72 outs.
Open-ended, flush draw and the case king.
Hansen’s day started with a $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO session against ex-CardRunners pro Cole South. After 169 hands, South took his leave down just over $12k.
While waiting for his next opponent at the nosebleed games, Hansen stopped by the $200/$400 Cap-PLO games for 99 hands, adding another $15k to his roll.
Ashton “theASHMAN103″ Griffin signed on to be Hansen’s next victim at the nosebleed cap games, losing $145,388 in his 111-hand stay.
After fleecing Griffin, Hansen took six hours off before returning to Full Tilt to join the running $200/$400 Cap-PLO game, where he lost $50,499 over 95 hands.
Shortly after starting the $200/$400 session, Hansen joined Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies at a regular $500/$1,000 PLO table, but left the game after just 26 hands down $14k.
It appears as if Hansen left the game with Sahamies to host a $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO re-match against South. The second round lasted for 220 hands with Hansen making another $376,430.
In total, Hansen added $485,129 to his roll, bringing him up to around $860k profit on the year so far.

Another straight for South.
While the railbirds got to see five of their favorite players around one table (four of which are Full Tilt team pros), the action wasn’t nearly as explosive as they would have liked.
Antonius was the game’s biggest winner and he was able to do it without a single monster pot. The largest hand Antonius was involved in was a $56k pot won by Gus Hansen.
Antonius went on to win $141,717 at the table, $170k on the day.
Hansen, who stayed at the six-max game for 156 hands, went on to lose $68,520 before moving on to a heads-up $500/$1,000 Cap-PLO match against Ashton “theASHMAN103″ Griffin. After 186 hands against Griffin, Hansen had dropped over $230k.
Thanks to a couple smaller wins along the way, Hansen finished the day down only $224,352.
The largest pot of the entire six-max session weighed in at only $94,196 with South getting it all in on the flop with top set of queens against Dwan’s two pair and Hansen’s straight draw.
The turn and river only helped South, who improved his hand to a full house to take down the three-way pot.
South went on to win both the second- and third-largest pots of the day as well, but was unable to hold on to the winnings finishing up just $5,837.
South made up for his disappointing six-max results by making over $124k at $200/$400 Cap PLO to finish the day up $107,741.
Ivey, who has been slowly grinding his way into a multi-million dollar year, played just 83 hands at the table and left up $12,067.
Finally, Dwan, who had just come off a large loss on the weekend, limited his day to just the one six-max session, losing $81,325 during his 179 hand stay.
Below are three of the hands from the session. To see more head to our online poker stats page.

Phil Ivey vs. Tom Dwan.
The session, which lasted for just under ten hours, took place across nine $200/$400 NLHE tables with the two playing the majority of the session on a total of eight tables at once.
The largest pot of the match went to jungleman12 who made $281,753 after spiking the nut straight on the turn. Despite the river pairing the board, his straight was still good and jungleman12 was more than willing move all in. Dwan made the $95k call and the pot was shipped across the table.
By the end of the epic session, Dwan had played a total 7,874 hands, losing a total $613,923 to jungleman12 and nearly doubling the unknown player’s profit so far this year.
Dwan, who had been on somewhat of a win streak leading up to the weekend, actually started playing on Saturday with a $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha session against Phil Ivey. The two Full Tilt pros played for a total of 430 hands over which Ivey banked $246,538.
In total on the day, Dwan lost $860,461 and would bring thoses losses up to over $1 million over the next 48 hours.
The losses drop Dwan to around $4.1 million in profit on the year, although he’s still in the number one slot.
Ivey, who has only played a total 16,095 hands this year currently sits in third place with $1.7 million in profits.

What a slick hand.

Griffin’s day started at $200/$400 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha where he lost $72k in his 160 hand stay at the table. After losing $6k in a quick 10 hands of $25/$50 heads-up PLO, Griffin sat for 470 hands of $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em Six-max.
Making back $65,872 and cutting his losses to just $13k, Griffin took three and a half hours off before returning to play URnotINdanger2 heads up at $200/$400 NLHE.
The match lasted for 1,085 hands and saw two pots worth over $100k.
Griffin took the largest pot, worth $136k, after raising with one of the worst possible heads-up hands, 2♦ 3♣. The flop came 3♠ 2♠ J♣, giving Griffin bottom two pair against URnotINdanger2′s top pair and flush draw with J♠ 9♠.
After a four-bet all in and a call on the flop, URnotINdanger2 could only watch as the 2♥ fell on the turn, giving Griffin a full house and leaving URnotINdanger2 with just two outs to catch up.
URnotINdanger2 missed sucking out on the river, shipping the pot and most of his stack to Griffin.
This latest session moves Griffin into second place among the year’s profit leaders with over $2 million made on Full Tilt so far this year.
