• Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the closing game in 3 of the events. 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 largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While wagering on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

    Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The best players anywhere in the world could be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
