Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Mara | Posted in Poker | Posted on 01-09-2019

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to make it to the 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 big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While participating in internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all in. I know Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I think tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best players anywhere in the world might be players you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in high stakes omaha hi-low and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in cash games?
