May 23rd, 2020 by Averie Leave a reply »

Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the closing table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest bettors in the world. While gambling on online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Gus more often than not buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to settle at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I think television can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest players in the world could be players you have never heard of. Gus can be found participating in online poker on Full Tilt. He generally competes in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
