Net Big Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen


Posted by Erik | Posted in Poker | Posted on 04-11-2020

Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the last poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest enthusiasts around the world. While participating in online poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently competes in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is flat broke, he has no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I believe television can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard about. Gus can be found gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
