Internet High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to make it to the last game in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best enthusiasts around the world. While wagering on online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total dollar value. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world could be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be found competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in high stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
