Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve closing table 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 might recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors anywhere in the world. While participating in web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total dollar value. I believe television can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world could be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen participating in net poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
