Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve last game in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest enthusiasts around the world. While betting on online poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have never heard about. Gus can be seen betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in high stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
