Internet High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned 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 appeared. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to settle at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I believe television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world could be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes Omaha and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
