Web High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve closing 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 might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest gamblers anywhere in the world. While gambling on web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Gus is a great poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
