Net High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the closing poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a big pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While gambling on online poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He often participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world could be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
