Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the last table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors around the world. While wagering on online poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to sit at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the expertise 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 amt.. I think television can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found wagering on online poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in money rounds?
