• Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

    Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve closing poker table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors in the world. While competing in web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has no reason to settle at the table with the min buy in.

    Buying in for the min takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total dollar value. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world might be players you have never heard of. Gus can be seen playing net poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
