Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve final poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world. While playing net poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He often participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total dollar value. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world could be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
