Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the last table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared 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 high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best players around the world. While gambling on online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world could be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in high stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money rounds?
