Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Prince | Posted in Poker | Posted on 07-01-2016

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the last table in three of the tournaments. 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 largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors in the world. While wagering on online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit 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 pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the greatest players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen playing internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in big stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
