• Online Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

    Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to make it to the final table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best enthusiasts in the world. While wagering on net poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus often plays in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

    Playing for the minimum takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amount. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world might just be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on web poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in big stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
