Web Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?

Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve last table in 3 of the events. 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 largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest gamblers in the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has no reason to settle at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amt.. I believe television can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha hold’em and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash games?
