Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the final poker table in 3 of the tournaments. 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 high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players in the world. While wagering on net poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He often participates 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 poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I think television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world might be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash games?
