Las Vegas 2024 Super
Bowl Streaker

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve closing game 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 remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest players in the world. While participating in online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus usually buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I think television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world may be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash rounds?
