Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only player to make it to the closing poker table in three 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 might remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest gamblers anywhere in the world. While betting on online poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I know Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I think television can alter our view of the real world at times. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have never heard about. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in money games?
