Danish poker pro Gus Hansen has taken down a pot in excess of $201,000 in an online game.

The gamer is renowned for being a major player on the live circuit but has earned a reputation for being a "major fish".

However, in a pot-limit Omaha game, Hansen struck back, taking Finnish player Ilari Sahamies for $201,191 in one hand of pot-limit Omaha

While he has earned as much cash playing on the internet as no-limit hold'em specialists, such as Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan, he is becoming a top performer in Poker Listings' top ten pots rankings.

He now holds five of the places in the list, each worth over $100,000.

During November, five-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Ivey pocketed more than $1.5 million in online poker winnings.

He recently overtook Patrik Antonius to claim the number one spot in the Full Tilt Money Makers list.

The poker pro took nearly $1 million after playing over 1,600 hands against Matt Hawrilenko.
