• Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve final game in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest bettors in the world. While wagering on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

    Playing for the min takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full dollar value. I think tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The greatest players in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in cash rounds?
