Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Wednesday, 9. March 2022

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant 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 big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best enthusiasts around the world. While playing net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He often participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think television can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best players anywhere in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
