Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the last game 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 big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers in the world. While playing web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full dollar value. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world might be players you have never heard of. Gus can be seen competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in high stakes omaha high and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
