Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the last poker table in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While participating in net poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.
Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found playing online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in cash rounds?
