Hansen, Ivey, Juanda and Robl in Macau Big Game

After Gus Hansen entered StarWorld’s Poker King Club on Friday but returned to Hong Kong without sitting down for a game, it was looking like he could make the jump down to the Aussie Millions in Melbourne, Australia before he had a chance to join any high-stakes cash game action in Macau. However, Poker Portal Asia has just learned The Great Dane is back in Macau and has joined a star-studded nosebleed game at the Poker King Club.

At the time of writing, Hansen was still in the HKD $10,000/$20,000 No Limit Hold’em game. He reportedly has HKD $6 million in front of him and is up in the session around HKD $2 million. We haven’t got confirmation on exactly how long the game has been going for but it’s enough for Hansen to warrant a good back massage.

His tablemates in the game are none other than John Juanda, Phil Ivey, Andrew Robl and some Chinese and Malaysian businessmen. You can just make out Phil Ivey in the left side of the bottom photo and what looks like a very healthy couple of towers of plaques. John Juanda is also getting a back rub to the left of Ivey while Robl looks to have his game face on – be it a very grainy one. We’ve opted to blur out any of the other players at the table who may be a little more camera shy than the pros.

Stay tuned to Poker Portal Asia for more news on Macau’s Big Game.
