Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

July 28th, 2017 by Averie Leave a reply »

Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to achieve last poker table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest gamblers in the world. While wagering on web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be one of the best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amount. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world might be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be found competing in web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha/8 and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money games?
