Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the final game 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 might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest bettors anywhere in the world. While gambling on internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money games?
