People often wonder, sometimes even aloud…in their outside voice no less…why Gus Hansen, inarguably the most successful World Poker Tour player of all-time, is without a WSOP bracelet.

We’ve spent hours searching for an answer. Had many, many sleepless night. And finally, after racking our brains and even doing a little bit of soul-searching ourselves, we’ve come to this ground-breaking conclusion: It’s because he plays maybe two or three events a year.

The $50k H.O.R.S.E. is one of them. 

And he’s the overnight chip leader.

With 53 remaining in the 2009 WSOP $50k H.O.R.S.E. event, Gus is big stacked at 686,000.

Hansen is followed by Ray Dehkharghani (no fucking idea…wait, hey look Google knows, it’s this guy) with 643,000. Other top 10 stacks include Todd Brunson (549,000), the we still can’t believe he’s actually physically alive Hasan Habib (490,000), defending champ Scotty Nguyen (463,000), and Tony G (433,000).

* Wow, we really went there again. Getting worse too. Much worse.
