Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 05-08-2021

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve closing table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While competing in web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amt.. I think tv can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be found playing web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes Omaha and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
