Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the final game in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest gamblers around the world. While participating in online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total dollar value. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players in the world might be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found wagering on net poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in big stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in money rounds?
