Internet High Stakes Poker- Who is Gus Hansen?
June 11th, 2020 by Deacon

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to make it to the final table in 3 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 may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a big 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 greatest players in the world. While participating in online poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He often plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus usually buys in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has no reason to play at the game with the min buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full amount. I think television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world could be players you have never heard of before. Gus can be found participating in web poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in high stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash rounds?
