Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the last poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. He won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest gamblers in the world. While participating in net poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I think television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players in the world might just be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen playing web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
