Gus Hansen had a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to achieve closing game in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He secured a huge pot with quads against Negreanu’s full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the best bettors in the world. While playing net poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He frequently participates in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus usually buys-in for the minimum of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. He sits there waiting for a good hand and then goes all in. I accept that Hansen is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the familiar players at 200/400NL. Unless he is flat broke, he has little or no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes most of the ability out of deep stack poker. Hansen is assumed to be one of the best players in the world but he cannot buy-in for the total amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world every now and then. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might just be players you have will not have heard of. Gus can be seen playing web poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha/8 and hold’em. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his abilities in money games?
