Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve closing game in 3 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 recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors around the world. While competing in net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to play at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think tv can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash rounds?
