Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve last table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a big pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While wagering on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He often participates 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 sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes Omaha and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
