• Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen experienced 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 might remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While playing online poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus frequently buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

    Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I think television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash games?
