Net High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to make it to the final table in three 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 largest pots in high stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a massive 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 in the world. While participating in net poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes most of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amt.. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world could be guys you have never heard of. Gus can be seen betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally competes in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
