Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve last poker 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 may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors in the world. While gambling on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amount. I think tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world might be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen wagering on net poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in high stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
