Gus Hansen enjoyed a wonderful year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only player to make it to the final game in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You might remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen won a large pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu’s full house. Gus has made many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors in the world. While competing in 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 more often than not buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a good hand and then goes all-in. I know Hansen is an excellent poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless he is penniless, he has no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Buying in for the minimum takes a majority of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is assumed to be 1 of the greatest poker players in the world but he can’t buy-in for the full dollar value. I think television can alter our perception of the real world at times. The greatest players in the world might be players you have never heard of before. Gus can be seen playing internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in high stakes omaha hold’em and texas hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in cash games?
