How bad can it get when playing online poker? If you ask Gus Hansen some days do not bring in bread and butter.
Gus was playing 15.5 hours straight at a Full Tilt Table, and stopped after losing a total of $796.000. The game played was Limit Omaha Hi/Lo with $2000/$4000 limits. Gus played a total of 1168 hands.
Patrick Antonius took a great deal of the winnings by going plus $476.000 over 674 hands.
Is the lesson that you should stop playing when you are on a losing steak? No, you should after my opinion only stop playing if you change your game to the negative. That is by going away from your A-game. I do this myself, if I am down 3 or more buyins I have a tendency to accept going all in preflop with cards like JJ and QQ in situations were my opponents show great strenght. Therefore make sure you know your own limitations regarding this issue.
