Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the WPT where he was the only participant to achieve final table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might recall one of the biggest pots in big stakes poker recorded history competing against Daniel Negreanu. He won a huge pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu's full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest players in the world. While competing in net poker, a different side of Hansen has emerged. He often competes in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys in for the minimum of $16, 000 and gambles very poorly. He waits patiently for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I know Gus is an outstanding poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is broke, he has little or no reason to play at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Hansen is accepted to be one of the best players anywhere in the world but he cannot buy in for the full amount. I think television can skew our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest players in the world might just be guys you have will not have heard of before. Gus can be seen competing in net poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes omaha hold'em and texas holdem. Gus has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in money rounds?
