Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve last game in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest players in the world. While betting on internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all in. I accept that Gus is a great poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I think television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world might be players you have never heard of. Gus can be found wagering on net poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in money games?
