Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve final table in three of the tournaments. 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 largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest enthusiasts in the world. While gambling on internet poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world might be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
