Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to make it to the final poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors around the world. While betting on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I think television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world might be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
