Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best players around the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He regularly plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world may be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in big stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
