Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to make it to the last table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest gamblers anywhere in the world. While wagering on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total dollar value. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have never heard of before. Gus can be seen playing web poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
