Web High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by George | Posted in Poker | Posted on 29-03-2024

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve final poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors in the world. While gambling on net poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He often plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently 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 believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amount. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in high stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money rounds?
