Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve last table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a huge pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest gamblers anywhere in the world. While betting on online poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I think tv can alter our view of the real world at times. The best players in the world might be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found playing net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money rounds?
