• Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    [ English ]

    Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve final poker table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a massive 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 best bettors in the world. While gambling on online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the min buy-in.

    Buying in for the minimum takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the greatest players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world may be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
