Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the last table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While competing in online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
