Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve final poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest gamblers in the world. While participating in internet poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He regularly competes in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I think television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world may be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes Omaha and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in money games?
