Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While playing net poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus usually buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world every now and then.
