Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to make it to the last 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 recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest enthusiasts around the world. While playing internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen wagering on online poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money rounds?
