Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

by Carmelo on February 12th, 2018

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the final poker table in 3 of the competitions. 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 history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While participating in online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently plays in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has no reason to settle at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I think television can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world might just be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be found betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in big stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
