Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to make it to the final game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest gamblers anywhere in the world. While betting on web poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus generally buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of big stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best poker players in the world but he cannot buy in for the total amount. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The best players in the world might be guys you have won’t have heard of before. Gus can be seen participating in web poker on Full Tilt. He commonly plays in big stakes omaha high and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
