• Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    [ English ]

    Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve closing game in 3 of the competitions. 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 big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best players anywhere in the world. While competing in web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

    Playing for the min takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total dollar value. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in high stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
