Bowl Streaker

Gus Hansen enjoyed a marvelous year on the World Poker Tour where he was the only gambler to achieve closing game in 3 of the events. 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 up against Daniel Negreanu. Hansen secured a big pot with 4 of a kind against Negreanu's full house. Gus has made many tv poker appearances and is deemed to be one of the best enthusiasts anywhere in the world. While betting on web poker, a different side of Hansen has appeared. Gus regularly competes in the 200/400 NL max buy-in of $40, 000. Hansen generally buys-in for the minimum of $16, 000 and plays very weak. He waits patiently for a good hand and then goes all-in. I accept that Hansen is an amazing poker player but not even close to the everyday players at 200/400no limit. Unless Gus is penniless, he has absolutely no reason to settle at the table with the minimum buy in.

Buying in for the minimum takes almost all of the expertise out of big stack poker. Hansen is presumed to be one of the best players in the world but he can't buy-in for the full amount. I think tv can alter our perception of the real world sometimes. The greatest poker players anywhere in the world might just be guys you have won't have heard about. Gus can be seen gambling on internet poker on Full Tilt. He usually competes in high stakes Omaha and texas hold'em. Gus Hansen has proven himself as a competition player. Can he back up his abilities in money rounds?
