Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only one to achieve final game in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared 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 recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world. While playing web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
