Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve final game in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared 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 recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers around the world. While playing web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus often plays in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world at times. The best players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
