Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing poker table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest players around the world. While gambling on web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The best players in the world could be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money games?
