Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the closing poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While gambling on net poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has no reason to sit at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The best players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be found betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
