Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 11-07-2020

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest gamblers around the world. While competing in web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amount. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world might be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money games?
