Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the closing table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers around the world. While competing in web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is an excellent poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money games?
