Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve closing game in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest gamblers anywhere in the world. While gambling on online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amt.. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be seen betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha high and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
