Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve last table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors around the world. While wagering on online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amt.. I believe television can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
