Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve closing table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a massive pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While playing online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus often competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I believe television can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be seen competing in web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
