Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

January 19th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the last poker table 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 may recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors anywhere in the world. While gambling on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The best players in the world could be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money games?
