Gus Hansen showcases his skills as a squash player

Gus Hansen is not a one-trick pony and anyone who doubts his ability to be competitive outside the poker table will get a chance to be proven wrong. The Great Dane has some experience in the art of fighting and even though he traded the gloves for the virtual felt, he could still take down virtually all of his peers.

Gus Hansen

He enjoys many sports but the one he is best at is squash, a game that he has been playing for many years, even though he didn’t make a big thing about it. Now that his poker career is going downhill, he has more time and plenty of reasons to focus on an entirely different hobby. This would be an understatement, since squash appears to be more than a past time for Gus who has high expectations for his new project.

Together with Morten Wiegandt Sørensen who is the reigning Danish champion, Hansen will open a squash center in Copenhagen. There is no shortage of players willing to compete here, so it is only fair to assume that his business will pick up speed soon. Hansen himself is expected to play there a lot and he considers himself to be one of the best 25 players in Denmark. There is no need for false modesty when you are actually good at the game, but many might be tempted to doubt his claim.

The fact is that last season he played against the best squash players in Denmark and won two out of six games, so we should give him credit. In order to draw further attention to his new project, Hansen will be promoting the venue by hosting a string of show games this weekend. They start at 2 pm local time and those who choose to participate will compete against top players including Gus Hansen and Wiegandt.

This is the complete schedule for the day:

14:00 to 14:45 Rule Course exhibition match
14:45 to 15:30 Try your hand against top players in a Double Game
15:30 to 16:15 Technique Course exhibition match
16:15 to 17:00 Gus Hansen Mixdouble
17:00 to 17:45 Morten Wiegandt exhibition match
17:45 to 18:30 Sissel Trap Double Battles
