Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve 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 might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best gamblers around the world. While gambling on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to settle at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I believe television can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes Omaha and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money games?
