• Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the final poker table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest enthusiasts around the world. While gambling on web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy in.

    Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total dollar value. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world at times. The best players in the world might be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes Omaha and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
