Internet High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?


Posted by Mara | Posted in Poker | Posted on 28-09-2021

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve closing game in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While gambling on internet poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. Gus often competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Hansen is an amazing 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.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amount. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world may be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in money games?
