Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing game in 3 of the competitions. 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 largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors around the world. While competing in internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in high stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in money games?
