Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 23-02-2010

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve last poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often participates in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen wagering on online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in money rounds?
