Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 11-06-2021

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve last 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 remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a big pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best gamblers in the world. While playing online poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world may be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
