Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve closing game in three of the tournaments. 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 history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best players in the world. While betting on web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world may be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in cash games?
