Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve last table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen 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 recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While betting on online poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in high stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in cash games?
