Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve final game 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 might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest players around the world. While betting on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I think television can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world might be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
