Online Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the last table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest enthusiasts in the world. While betting on net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total dollar value. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world could be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
