Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve closing table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While participating in internet poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Hansen is an excellent poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I believe television can skew our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world could be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
