Bowl Streaker

Gus Hansen experienced a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve final game in three of the events. Gus Hansen has been seen on High Stakes Poker on The Game Show Network where he paid $400, 000 to play. You might remember one of the largest pots in high stakes poker history against Daniel Negreanu. Gus won a large pot with 4 of a kind against Daniel's full house. Hansen has earned many televised poker appearances and is thought to be one of the strongest players around the world. While wagering on web poker, a different side of Hansen has been seen. Gus regularly plays in the 200/400 No Limit maximum buy in of Forty Thousand dollars. Gus more often than not buys-in for the min of $16, 000 and plays very poorly. He waits for a decent hand and then pushes all in. I accept that Gus is an outstanding poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400NL. Unless he is bankrupt, he has no reason to sit at the table with the minimum buy-in.

Buying in for the min takes most of the expertise out of deep stack poker. Gus is presumed to be one of the greatest poker players anywhere in the world but he can't buy in for the total amount. I think television can skew our view of the real world at times. The best poker players in the world may be guys you have won't have heard about. Gus can be found participating in internet poker on Full Tilt. He generally plays in big stakes Omaha and Holdem. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he use his abilities in money games?
