Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve last game in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest bettors around the world. While competing in net poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amt.. I believe television can skew our view of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world could be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
