Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve final game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest bettors in the world. While playing internet poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus usually buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amt.. I believe television can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be seen betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in high stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money games?
