Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 27-01-2018

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the last table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors anywhere in the world. While betting on net poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have never heard of. Gus can be found betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money games?
