Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a huge pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest players around the world. While participating in web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus frequently buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash rounds?
