Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve closing game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a big pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While wagering on online poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He often participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to settle at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world at times. The best players anywhere in the world could be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
