Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve closing poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest gamblers in the world. While betting on internet poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found wagering on online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
