Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only one to make it to the last table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might recall one of the largest pots in big stakes poker history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best gamblers around the world. While competing in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen more often than not buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the table with the min buy in.

Playing for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amt.. I believe tv can skew our view of the real world sometimes. The best poker players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have never heard of before. Gus can be seen wagering on internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
