Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Thursday, 25. February 2016

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve final poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While playing web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be found competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes Omaha and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in money games?
