Web Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Saturday, 30. May 2020

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to make it to the final game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest bettors around the world. While playing web poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus usually buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The best players in the world might just be guys you have never heard of. Gus can be found wagering on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in high stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
