Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to make it to the final table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors in the world. While wagering on net poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. He frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all-in. I know Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he can’t buy in for the full amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen betting on web poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in money games?
