HighStakes: Gus Hansen takes a break from the highest stakes

The past few days, Gus Hansen, the Danish poker pro, has been playing on much lower stakes than he usually does. There are many theories why he has moved down in stakes. One of them is that his bankroll isn't what it used to be, and therefore he can't afford to play against "durrrr", Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey, and other big names at the highest stakes. Another theory is that he finds the opp[...]   Read more » HighStakes: Gus Hansen takes a break from the highest stakes

racpxt, oh man you got to be one of the most stupid ppl on the eart -.-' Rafael Nadal WAS the best player in the world when Söderling beat him... Roger federer was ranked nr.2 and Nadal nr.1 so please don't say anything more you are so stupid... and after french open he was injured and away from wimbledon = MUCH rank points away...

This should be a lesson for all amateur players out there. Even when your bankroll grows, it is not always a good option to move up to higher limit poker. Even the best of the best can find themselves losing alot of money.

Remember what stakes brought your bankroll and that making fast money is not an option in poker.

Stay confident Gus, your cold decks will soon turn around. Smile

Every player has to do a move down somewhere during his career to recover from a big downswing and regain confidence.

And there is an error on the new: "...lost a lot of money when the best tennis player in the world (Rafael Nadal)...", he isn't the best player in the world, just the best player in the world on clay surface, just that. Federer > Murray > Nadal.


Gus rocks Smile hope he will get back on track soon .

Gus is much too aggressive at higher stakes.
His Pot Limit Omaha game is ludicrously loose.

Ha that rhymes

He play lots of pots. But his lucky is far away from Phil Ivey for example.

Hansons style most closely resembles a lag (loose aggressive). As such, his bankroll will suffer swings when he doesn't catch favorable flops. Moving down limits is probably the best thing for him to protect his remaining bankroll and get his game back on track. Thee have been other pros that have done this in the past, and there will be others after Gus.

Gus is an EXCELLENT live player, his instincts on the table are actually scary good. But online, i'm not sure if he keep up with the likes of Durrr, isildur1, or even Ivey, who have made probably more than $30million together playing online, whereas Gus at those stakes just seems to lose pot after pot.
He will be CRUSHING $1000NL though, mark my words.
