Internet Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

[ English ]

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve closing poker table in three 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 may remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest players anywhere in the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen more often than not buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes omaha hold’em and hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
