Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

April 11th, 2022 Leave a comment Go to comments

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the final game in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players in the world. While competing in internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I accept that Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total dollar value. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be players you have never heard about. Gus can be found playing internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in high stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
