Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler 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 might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While gambling on net poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to sit at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found playing online poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
