Internet High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the last poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best enthusiasts in the world. While competing in online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus frequently buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 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 at times. The best players anywhere in the world may be players you have never heard about. Gus can be seen gambling on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha high and hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in money rounds?
