Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors in the world. While betting on internet poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely 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 deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full dollar value. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes Omaha and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
