Gus Hansen lashes out against 'SallyWoo'

Gus Hansen lashes out against 'SallyWoo'

Omaha Hi/Lo (FLO8) specialist poker player 'SallyWoo' has already been making ripples in the online poker scene barely a week into 2014. The unidentified high-stakes poker player has already amassed over half a million dollars after playing 1738 hands over eight sessions. 'SallyWoo' has also opted out of having his results tracked in a bid to protect his identity, privacy and to gain an edge while playing online.

Gus Hansen has reacted negatively to this. Hansen, who is deemed to be the online poker player with the biggest loses in 2013, has droped almost $8.5 million on the virtual felts. Hansen lashed out at 'SallyWoo' in a virtual chatter box at Full Tilt Poker prior to the New Year. He apparently became enraged after getting disconnected in a game of FLO8 stating 'SallyWoo' should pay back the $4000 Hansen had put on the game before the disconnection.

'SallyWoo' defended his position saying that he and Hansen had agreed beforehand on how these situations were to be handled, but that Hansen changed his stance at the last minute and started accusing him of cheating via the use of a 3rd party software.

Here is a transcript of the chat log:

SallyWoo: and this "friend" of yours told u i closed the table, when i didnt
SallyWoo: and i explained why, this "friend" should have also seen what happened
Gus Hansen: the computer program right by your side - could be slippery slope
SallyWoo: ?
SallyWoo: huh
SallyWoo: 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 something
Gus Hansen: nope I am not
Hattenford (Observer): confirmed Gus, i was here to, he didnt close it
Gus Hansen: accusing you of cheating
Gus Hansen: of course not
SallyWoo: you accused me of closing tables to pull and angle and then have a computer prgram next to me, thats out of line imo
Gus Hansen: Please tell me that will swear right hear that you dont have a O8 computer program
Gus Hansen: anyways - I dont have a case in court - but I doubt any poker player would rule that you should keep the 4K
SallyWoo: you really are accusing me of this gus?
Gus Hansen: do whatever you think is right
SallyWoo: tell me upfront
Gus Hansen: I am not accusing you of anythjing
SallyWoo: what was our deal with dc, i will always honor it now and in future
Gus Hansen: I believe you have an O8 program - thats all I said
SallyWoo: 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 down
Gus Hansen: maybe 130
SallyWoo: but if he dc after we bet its on player?
Gus Hansen: 571
Gus Hansen: ok
SallyWoo: im honoring our deal, as i always have
SallyWoo: what is 130 and 571?
Gus Hansen: times you have paid me back after disconnect
SallyWoo: every time u have those short dc dont i always adjust btns for u?
Gus Hansen: I havent said you didnt
Gus Hansen: just enjoyed your exaggeration
SallyWoo: 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 him
SallyWoo: i remeber the conversation vividly
Gus Hansen: not sure we specifically said that
Gus Hansen: but this was preflop
SallyWoo: 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 it
Gus Hansen: whatever
Gus 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 do
SallyWoo: ohh lord gus, i dont cheat
SallyWoo: i did nothing wrong here, ill ask ft for our conversation about our deal and send it to u on twitter or something
Gus 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 west
