every hand is the same. raise with trash. win blinds or c-bet.

Its certainly enlightening.

To call hiim a donk is a bit silly. You dont go winning $1.5 million AUS playining like a donk.

The whole point of the book is about how he is an expert at knowing when to get involved with a hand and when to fold it. Much of his game is not about the cards hes got in his hand, it about what he can make his opponent believe he has.


The best pros dont play the game using the cards they have, they play their opponent. Just like Annette Obrestad could take down a $4 90 man SNG not looking at her hole cards.

They play their opponent not hte cards.

True

You can get 72o, but you can make him think that you've got AAs, it's just how you play.

But it is so much more difficult online with donks just calling you Big Smile

This depends by far on the level or limit you are playing at. Sure, if you playing on micro limits, people nowadays almost treat them like play chips. But go play $10/$20 no limit games and you will not get these random situations where someone will call 5bb's preflop on a K-deuce suited, hoping to catch a runner-runner straight. I hear so many people always complain about bad beats they encounter... Yeah, well, don't play in a $1 chip'n'chair or at the $0.01/$0.02 stakes as you KNOW this can happen.

But I am getting off-topic... Gus Hansen's book. Can you tell us some more Daverj? I take from the tone of your post you were not impressed? Surely there must be more to it than what you are telling us? I would like to know your opinion and why you think what you think Smile

like all tourneys he has luck with a few hands which is fair enough.. and he wins a few coin flips against medium/small stacks. he plays a few hands very well but most are just donk style stealing pots with his 'amazing reads'. there is one hand that really shows his style really well. im gonna copy it from the book but without his commentry on the hand.

6 handed. 6k/12k/2k 2nd position A6o

Gus: raise to 39k
BB calls.

flop 578 rainbow

BB check
Gus bet 52k
BB all-in raise to 386k

he goes on to talk about how its probably a bluff but he is probably behind. getting 38.6% odds he calls.

BB shows AJ.

turn 6
river 4

its probably one of the most interesting hands. mainly because of the way he justifies it with his maths but as it turns out he kind of misread the situation lol

He has an open ended straight draw in this hand. And against the hand of his opponent he is around 40:60. So he is not that wrong with his read.

NO not read this one.
Dont get me wrong here Gus is one of the greats, but I wounder why he has had to lend so much over the years. What if no one lent him $ were would he be now.
Heck if someone lends me 4 mill intrst free im sure id do quite well. or not.
He is a math wizz and IMO should stick to tourns. BUt we all know he loves HS.

Those two books are viewed as the best for SnGs:

-SnG Strategy by Collin Moshman

-Kill Everyone by Lee Nelson
