Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve final table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers around the world. While gambling on online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has no reason to settle at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total dollar value. I think television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world may be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in high stakes omaha hi-low and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
