Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve last table in three of the tournaments. 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 largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best gamblers in the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found competing in web poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
