Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve final game in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While playing online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles 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 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 min takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amount. I think television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players in the world could be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
