Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

November 23rd, 2015 at 11:21

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the closing table in three 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 largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best players in the world. While playing online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly participates in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to settle at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The best poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be found playing internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
