Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While playing online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I think television can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world might just be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes Omaha and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
