Net High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve closing table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While betting on online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often participates in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amount. I think tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found playing web poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money rounds?
