Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the final table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While betting on net poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world may be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha high and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in cash games?
