Even the best of the best can still lose big. Gus Hansen, the three time World Poker Tour winner and one of People magazine's sexiest men alive (back in 2004), lost a whopping $8,461,472 in online poker for 2013. It's safe to say that this would probably affect even the best of us, and might lead some to be a little frustrated with the game of poker. It seems that this frustration was unleashed as Hansen made some accusations of cheating against fellow online poker player SallyWoo. The argument began over what should happen if someone disconnects during a hand, but quickly escalated from there. Here is part of the conversation that took place: SallyWoo: what are u trying to get at with those questions?SallyWoo: u think im pulling an angle?Gus Hansen: just seemed funny that you chose to close the table downSallyWoo: but i didnt choose that now did iiGus Hansen: if not you then who closed the table downSallyWoo: u dont listenSallyWoo: it was NEVER closedSallyWoo: i had 2 tables open all day, 2nd one doesnt show its in the backgroundGus Hansen: ok fair enoughSallyWoo: u should understand thisSallyWoo: for some reason when u left it pushed new one up front, maybe cause new one had more money at it? idk and dint noticeGus Hansen: anyways - asked my friend about it - he thinks you should pay back the 4K - think it over - and do whatever you feel likeSallyWoo: wait, who is this friendSallyWoo: and i thought our deal way we NEVER bet if guy dcSallyWoo: but if he dc after we bet its on himSallyWoo: i just 3 bet and then u dcSallyWoo: am i in wrong here?Gus Hansen: like I said think it over and do as you pleaseSallyWoo: do u think i did something wrong here?Gus Hansen: nope you 3 bet nothing wrong with thatSallyWoo: i can assure u i dont angle over 4k, i have ZERO history of thatSallyWoo: in 12 yrs of onmline play (yes ive been around that long and im older than u)Gus Hansen: dont think age gives any creditSallyWoo: obvi notSallyWoo: pointing out i have a long history of playing with integrityGus Hansen: I know thatSallyWoo: and this "friend" of yours told u i closed the table, when i didntSallyWoo: and i explained why, this "friend" should have also seen what happenedGus Hansen: the computer program right by your side - could be slippery slopeSallyWoo: ?SallyWoo: huhSallyWoo: are you accusing me of cheating?Gus Hansen: and funny enough all the guys taking about integrity is you KPR and Cotton like you have to prove somethingGus Hansen: nope I am notHattenford (Observer): confirmed Gus, i was here to, he didnt close itGus Hansen: accusing you of cheatingGus Hansen: of course notSallyWoo: you accused me of closing tables to pull and angle and then have a computer prgram next to me, thats out of line imoGus Hansen: Please tell me that will swear right hear that you dont have a O8 computer programGus Hansen: anyways - I dont have a case in court - but I doubt any poker player would rule that you should keep the 4KSallyWoo: you really are accusing me of this gus?Gus Hansen: do whatever you think is rightSallyWoo: tell me upfrontGus Hansen: I am not accusing you of anythjingSallyWoo: what was our deal with dc, i will always honor it now and in futureGus Hansen: I believe you have an O8 program - thats all I saidSallyWoo: i thought deal was if either player dc we return btns (i have done that for u 30 times)SallyWoo: and if guy dc we check it downGus Hansen: maybe 130SallyWoo: but if he dc after we bet its on player?Gus Hansen: 571Gus Hansen: okSallyWoo: im honoring our deal, as i always haveSallyWoo: what is 130 and 571?Gus Hansen: times you have paid me back after disconnectSallyWoo: every time u have those short dc dont i always adjust btns for u?Gus Hansen: I havent said you didntGus Hansen: just enjoyed your exaggerationSallyWoo: state the deal with dc and i will honor it, always have, but u were the one when we made deal that said if guy dc AFTER we bet its on himSallyWoo: i remeber the conversation vividlyGus Hansen: not sure we specifically said thatGus Hansen: but this was preflopSallyWoo: we did, ill ask FT to retrieve chat if they will, can u have them do it? i give you them and u permission to read itGus Hansen: whateverGus Hansen: since this was probably last time we played - I just wanna add it was funny you were so offended of me saying you have an O8 computer program - since obviously you doSallyWoo: ohh lord gus, i dont cheatSallyWoo: i did nothing wrong here, ill ask ft for our conversation about our deal and send it to u on twitter or somethingGus Hansen: lol - I guess you are trying to start a career as a politician, since you like to answer in east when the question came from westThis exchange seems to have divided the poker community as some are siding with Hansen, while others believe SallyWoo has done nothing wrong. HishStakesDB user MusicalJustice posted, 'SallyWoo, KPR16, and cottonseed1 are all really secretive and weird players who hide their long term results and won't play each other because they are "friends". And cottonseed1's graph was so weird---just going up up up and no downs, that it makes him that much more suspicious. Then he yanks down his long term graph because he's paranoid it's going to look unnatural and he'll get busted for cheating."In SallyWoo's defense, HighStakesDB Administrator JoyToys replied, 'Whose graphs keep on going up and up? I know you can't see them on here as the three people mentioned have opted out, but I can tell you that KPR16 and SallyWoo's graphs for 2013 are anything but straightforward. Yes, they are both decent winners, but both have suffered seven figure swings in both directions. Yes, they are very profitable, but then again they have been specialists dedicated to their particular disciplines for years, and both clearly have an edge on Gus, and this is where they have won most of their money. On the other hand, JoyToys does reserve some doubts, stating, 'That said, I find it odd that he seemed to be deliberately avoiding answering the "o8 program" question, but that isn't necessarily an admission of guilt."What do you think? Was Hansen out of line or is SallyWoo a mechanic? Please share your thoughts and comments on our Facebook page.
