Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 13-10-2019

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to make it to the closing poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a massive 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 best bettors in the world. While competing in web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus more often than not buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amount. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world might be players you have never heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes omaha hi-low and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash games?
