• Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    [ English ]

    Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve last poker table 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 may recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors in the world. While betting on net poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He regularly plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally 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 accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

    Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the greatest players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes Omaha and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
