Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

March 10th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve final poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest enthusiasts around the world. While gambling on online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world might just be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be found gambling on net poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in cash games?
