• Internet High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

    Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve final poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest players in the world. While betting on web poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He often competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus frequently buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

    Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in big stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
