Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the final table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a large pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest enthusiasts in the world. While participating in web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Hansen is an excellent poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is assumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
