Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the final poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest bettors around the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Hansen is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
