Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the final game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest gamblers anywhere in the world. While competing in net poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently participates in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found participating in web poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
