Online Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only player to make it to the final game in three of the tournaments. 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 biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best players around the world. While betting on web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found gambling on net poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
