Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best gamblers around the world. While competing in net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I believe television can alter our view of the real world at times. The best players anywhere in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be seen gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
