Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve closing game in 3 of the competitions. 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 competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While playing internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world might be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in high stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
