Net Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?


Posted by Mara | Posted in Poker | Posted on 27-01-2022

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to achieve closing table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest players around the world. While playing web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I know Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in high stakes Omaha and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money rounds?
