Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

October 7th, 2022 by Averie Leave a reply »

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the closing table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While betting on internet poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus more often than not 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 Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think television can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world might be guys you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen playing web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha/8 and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his skills in money rounds?
