Internet Big Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?
March 21st, 2020 by Deacon

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the final poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a huge pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is considered to be one of the greatest players around the world. While competing in internet poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I believe Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes almost all of the ability out of deep 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 tv can skew our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be seen wagering on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hi-low and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
