Gus Hansen had a wonderful year on the WPT where he was the only player to achieve closing poker table 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 biggest pots in big stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a large pot with quads against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best players in the world. While competing in net poker, another side of Hansen has been seen. He often plays in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Gus is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the regular players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full amount. I believe television can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be found gambling on web poker on Full Tilt. He usually participates in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money rounds?
