Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve last game in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a huge pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best gamblers anywhere in the world. While gambling on net poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I believe television can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen gambling on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money rounds?
