Gus Hansen experienced an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve final poker table in 3 of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen 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 history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Gus has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best enthusiasts in the world. While playing net poker, another side of Hansen has appeared. Gus frequently competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy-in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus generally buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to sit at the game with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of big stack poker. Gus is supposed to be 1 of the best players in the world but he can’t buy in for the full dollar value. I think television can alter our view of the real world at times. The best poker players anywhere in the world might be players you have will not have heard about. Gus can be seen betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He commonly participates in high stakes omaha/8 and Holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash rounds?
