Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve last table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest gamblers in the world. While wagering on web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world may be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
