Net Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?


Posted by Anabel | Posted in Poker | Posted on 06-04-2022

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve final poker table in three of the competitions. 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 biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest bettors around the world. While participating in net poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen 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 goes all-in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total dollar value. I think tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world could be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be seen gambling on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money games?
