Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only one to achieve final table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. He raked in a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel’s full house. Hansen has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best players around the world. While gambling on net poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I believe Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has little or no reason to settle at the table with the min buy in.

Buying in for the min takes almost all of the skill out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I believe tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest players in the world might just be players you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be found betting on internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally participates in high stakes omaha high and texas holdem. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he use his skills in cash rounds?
