• Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour 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 The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest enthusiasts around the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often plays in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

    Buying in for the min takes almost all of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best players in the world could be guys you have never heard of. Gus can be found competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes omaha eight-or-better and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money games?
