Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

January 9th, 2023 Leave a comment Go to comments

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing game 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 against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players in the world. While wagering on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world may be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in high stakes omaha hi-low and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in cash games?
