• Net Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

    Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve closing game in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest players anywhere in the world. While wagering on online poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

    Buying in for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full dollar value. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world might be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in high stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
