Online Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve closing poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While playing internet poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus usually buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found playing web poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes omaha hold’em and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
