• Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve last table in three 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 might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest players in the world. While playing web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He often participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

    Playing for the min takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I believe television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
