Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the closing game in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While wagering on online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus more often than not buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be players you have never heard of before. Gus can be found participating in web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money games?
