Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve last poker table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors around the world. While participating in web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is a great poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world may be guys you have never heard of. Gus can be seen gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in money games?
