Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the final game 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 big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest players in the world. While betting on online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum 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 full amount. I think television can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be found competing in online poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in high stakes omaha eight-or-better and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
