Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve closing game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared 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 up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a large pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest bettors anywhere in the world. While gambling on internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good 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 flat broke, he has no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha high and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
