Gus Hansen had an amazing year on the WPT where he was the only gambler to make it to the final poker table in 3 of the competitions. Gus Hansen has appeared on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he bought into the game for $400, 000. You may remember one of the largest pots in big stakes poker recorded history up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen raked in a massive pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel's full house. Gus has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the greatest players in the world. While participating in internet poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus often competes in the 200/400 No Limit max buy in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the min of Sixteen Thousand dollars and plays very poorly. 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 no reason to play at the table with the min buy-in.

Playing for the min takes a majority of the skill out of big stack poker. Gus is assumed to be one of the best poker players in the world but he can't buy in for the full amount. I think tv can alter our view of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players in the world might just be guys you have never heard about. Gus can be seen competing in internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes omaha/8 and texas hold'em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a tournament player. Can he use his talents in cash rounds?
