Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Tuesday, 27. August 2019

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to make it to the closing poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best gamblers in the world. While participating in web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I believe television can alter our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be found participating in net poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes Omaha and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
