Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only one to achieve final poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players in the world. While participating in online poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. Gus regularly participates in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen frequently buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is penniless, he has little or no reason to sit at the game with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the ability out of deep stack poker. Gus is accepted to be 1 of the greatest players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full dollar value. I believe television can alter our view of the real world every now and then. The greatest players anywhere in the world may be players you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be found gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually plays in big stakes omaha hold’em and Holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
