Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only player to make it to the closing table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen 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 history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest players anywhere in the world. While gambling on online poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Hansen is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be one of the greatest players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world could be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
