Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared 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 high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a big 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 best bettors around the world. While playing online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes omaha hold’em and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
