• Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

    [ English ]

    Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve closing table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors around the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

    Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
