Net High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?


Posted by Prince | Posted in Poker | Posted on 30-04-2019

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve final table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world. While betting on online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total dollar value. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The best poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes omaha/8 and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money rounds?
