Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?
March 23rd, 2020 by Miranda

Gus Hansen experienced a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a massive pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best gamblers in the world. While wagering on web poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amt.. I believe television can skew our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world may be players you have never heard of. Gus can be found wagering on web poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha eight-or-better and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money games?
