Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

October 25th, 2020 Leave a comment Go to comments

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve last poker table in 3 of the events. 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 recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest players around the world. While gambling on web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money games?
