Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to make it to the closing poker table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players in the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has no reason to sit at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total dollar value. I think television can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world might be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen participating in net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in high stakes omaha/8 and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in money games?
