Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve last game in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a large pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the strongest bettors anywhere in the world. While betting on web poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a decent hand and then goes all-in. I believe Gus is an amazing poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is broke, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is supposed 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 alter our view of the real world every now and then. The best poker players in the world might just be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be found participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in high stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
