Online Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the final table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest bettors around the world. While wagering on net poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world might be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
