Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve final game in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best players around the world. While competing in web poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full dollar value. I think television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world could be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
