Web High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

[ English ]

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the last game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest enthusiasts around the world. While wagering on web poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world might be players you have never heard about. Gus can be found participating in net poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
