Bowl Streaker

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to make it to the closing poker table in 3 of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the biggest pots in high stakes poker history competing against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won 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 greatest enthusiasts in the world. While gambling on online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He often plays in the 200/400 NL maximum buy in of $40, 000. Gus frequently buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. 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 regular players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the game with the minimum buy in.

Playing for the min takes almost all of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the greatest players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I believe television can skew our view of the real world every now and then. The best players anywhere in the world may be guys you have won't have heard of. Gus can be found gambling on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally plays in high stakes Omaha and hold'em. Gus Hansen has shown himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in cash games?
