Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

December 10th, 2018 at 10:25

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the final poker table in three of the competitions. 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 history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While playing net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He often participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be found betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash games?
