Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to achieve last poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest bettors in the world. While betting on online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently competes in the 200/400 NL max buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes most of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full dollar value. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found betting on net poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in big stakes Omaha and texas hold’em. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in money rounds?
