Online Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

by Ali on January 24th, 2021

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve closing table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus raked in a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the strongest enthusiasts in the world. While playing online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amt.. I believe tv can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world might be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
