Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the final poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players around the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He regularly plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to sit at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world could be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be found gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in big stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
