Online High Stakes Poker- Gus Hansen

September 24th, 2022 by Aryan Leave a reply »

Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve final poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus secured a large 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 best gamblers in the world. While gambling on web poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He frequently plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen frequently buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I know Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is broke, he has little or no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total dollar value. I think television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The best poker players in the world may be players you have won’t have heard of. Gus can be seen wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
