Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest gamblers in the world. While gambling on net poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He often competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I believe television can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The best players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash games?
