Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

November 23rd, 2013 at 3:21

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve final table in three of the tournaments. 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 largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players around the world. While gambling on net poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
