Web High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

November 26th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve last poker table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest enthusiasts in the world. While gambling on internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to sit at the game 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 best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amount. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
