Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the last 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 biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While betting on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the best players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full dollar value. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world may be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen gambling on net poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in high stakes Omaha and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
