Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the closing poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest bettors in the world. While playing web poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amount. I think tv can skew our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
