Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the last game in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest players anywhere in the world. While competing in online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the best players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I think television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be found betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money rounds?
