Bowl Streaker

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only participant to achieve final table in three of the tournaments. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on GSN where he paid $400, 000 to play. You may recall one of the largest pots in high stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel's full house. Hansen has earned many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the greatest gamblers in the world. While competing in online poker, another side of Hansen has emerged. He regularly competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen usually buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and gambles very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then pushes all in. I believe Hansen is a great poker player but certainly not even close to the familiar players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is flat broke, he has absolutely no reason to play at the game with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Hansen is supposed to be 1 of the best players anywhere in the world but he can't buy in for the full amt.. I think television can alter our view of the real world at times. The greatest poker players in the world might just be players you have never heard about. Gus can be seen betting on online poker on Full Tilt. He normally participates in big stakes omaha hi-low and texas holdem. Gus has shown himself as a tournament player. Can he back up his talents in money games?
