Internet High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only one to achieve final game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest enthusiasts in the world. While gambling on net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys in for the min 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 everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amt.. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world may be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen wagering on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money games?
