Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve final game in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest enthusiasts in the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in money rounds?
