• Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

    Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to make it to the closing game in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest enthusiasts around the world. While playing web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy in.

    Playing for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amount. I think television can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world may be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on net poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
