Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the last game in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While gambling on internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen usually buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an excellent poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world may be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen playing online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
