Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve closing table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors in the world. While gambling on web poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best players anywhere in the world may be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found playing internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in high stakes omaha eight-or-better and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
