Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the final table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest gamblers around the world. While betting on web poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total dollar value. I think television can skew our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be found betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money games?
