Gus Hansen enjoyed an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only one to achieve last poker table in three of the competitions. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best bettors in the world. While playing net poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. He regularly participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Hansen generally buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then pushes all-in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the best poker players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy-in for the full dollar value. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have never heard of. Gus can be found competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes omaha hi-low and texas hold’em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in cash games?
