Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve closing table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While wagering on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world might just be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be found competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
