Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve last table in 3 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 biggest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While wagering on online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the best players anywhere 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 sometimes. The best players in the world could be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
