Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Prince | Posted in Poker | Posted on 12-10-2020

Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve final poker table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest gamblers in the world. While gambling on online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits 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 everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amount. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have never heard of. Gus can be found betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He commonly competes in big stakes omaha hold’em and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in cash games?
