Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve last 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 may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a big pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He 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 gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I think tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be found betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
