Online High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Tuesday, 13. October 2015

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve final game in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best enthusiasts in the world. While gambling on web poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I think television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world could be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be seen participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in money games?
