Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve final poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a huge pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest bettors in the world. While participating in online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world might just be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
