Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the last table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest bettors in the world. While competing in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not 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 accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I think television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be found wagering on web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in high stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
