Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve closing 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 might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest bettors around the world. While betting on online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I believe television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players anywhere in the world might be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen playing web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
