Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?
October 16th, 2019 by Deacon

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve last table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors anywhere in the world. While gambling on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. He often participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the total amt.. I think television can skew our perception of the real world at times. The best poker players anywhere in the world may be players you have never heard of before. Gus can be found wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in high stakes omaha high and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money games?
