What If You Were Able To Get Right Inside The Mind Of World-Famous Poker Pro Gus Hansen--And Learn His Winning Secrets?

Now You Can.

One of professional poker's most intriguing and fascinating players, Gus Hansen has often been called "The Madman" for his crazy, fearless, aggressive style. But you can't dispute the fact that this poker superstar knows how to win--and win big. The holder of the inaugural Poker Superstars Invitational title as well as the only player to win three World Poker Tour tournaments, Gus won his fifth major international title when he became the 2007 Aussie Millions Champion, outlasting 747 players and nabbing $1.2 million. Now, for the first time ever, Gus analyzes the hands that he played during the tournament and reveals his secrets for winning in Every Hand Revealed.

You'll learn:

  • An extensive, easy-to-follow analysis of the more than 300 hands he played during the Aussie Millions...

  • The radical, yet coolly logical, methods behind Gus's "madness" that have helped him to win consistently...

  • Each and every bluff, precise calculation, educated guess, and read of his opponents ...

  • How to call large bets with seemingly unplayable hands...

  • When to raise out of position with garbage holdings...

  • How the prize structure should influence your play...

  • And much more!

Offering unlimited access to one of the most successful, popular poker players out there, Every Hand Revealed will help you understand some of poker's most coveted secrets--and simply shows you the right way to play the game whether you're a beginner or a poker pro. Now with Gus Hansen by your side, you too can turbo-charge your game and watch it take off!

Superstar poker pro Gus Hansen has shaken up the poker world with his loose, aggressive style. Called "The Great Dane" as well as "The Madman," the five-time international title-holder transforms his hands with cool logic ...and flattens his opponents. Voted one of the world's sexiest men by People Magazine, Gus is an avid athlete, backgammon player, and poker commentator for both Danish and American T.V.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gus hits the jackpot 22 July 2008
Format:Paperback
'Every Hand Revealed' is an absolute must-read for all poker players in my opinion ...

I have a vast poker library and this is now one of my favourites. Gus takes us on his journey through his victory at the Aussie Millions hand by hand with his thoughts behind each move, acknowledgement of alternative strategies and then his reasoning for choosing the path he does.

Each chapter represents a different day of the tournament and begins with Gus's thoughts on preparation, overall strategy for the day etc. Each chapter then ends with a recap.

While I think some hands could have been omitted, they do add to the overall feel of playing the tournament on Gus' shoulder and sometimes in reality you do just get "napkins" after "napkins". Gus' explanations for moves are delivered logically and while it's not a strategy many would adopt it is certainly food for thought for those who are prepared and willing to expand their outlook.

When Gus makes bad plays ... he tells us. When he makes good plays ... he tells us. When he steams ... he tells us. When he misreads his hand ... he tells us. He tells us everything and in a very charming, readable manner.

Gus is a great poker player, and now, it transpires a great writer. I can't wait to get his next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Great Dane is Barking 2 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
This was a really enjoyable read for me. Gus goes through the 300+ hands that he played in winning some big tournament in Australia and explains his thinking hand by hand. A shame that he didn't mention all the hands he folded preflop - including these would have given a better picture of Gus' play, even if it would have made the book more boring in places

But I'd better tell you why I liked the book before I go any further. It reminded me a bit of reality television. I felt like I was sitting there watching Gus from behind the safety of a TV screen and waiting for the car crash to happen. It was also a bit like listening to Dark Side of the Moon in that it gave me a picture of what goes on inside the head of a barking loon

You see, Gus is a very different player to those that have read through Harrington, Moshman, Gordon et al. His starting requirements for betting are unbelievably loose, he has no respect for position at the table, he spits in the face of Sklansky's Gap Concept, he never folds his blinds,... Need I go on?

This is definitely more a book to read for entertainment than one to learn from, unless
- you need a bit more aggression in your game, or
- you're planning in playing tourmanents with big stacks, long blind levels and high antes relative to blinds, or
- you're Andrew "Gutshot" Chow from Bristol, in which case Gus Hansen is relatively sane and might be able to help tighten your game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insightful - but don't believe the cover blurb 12 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read this over the last couple of days and Gus Hansen's Every Hand Revealed has proved to be a refreshing - if not educational - read. It's refreshing in that every other poker book you read is effectively a learning manual, whereas this is a blow-by-blow account of the Aussie Millions 2007 tournament where Hansen swept through the field of 747 players to win 1.5m Aus dollars.

Anyone who is anything more than the most casual poker player will probably enjoy it, but otherwise steer well clear, as in essence the book consists of Hansen talking through 300 hands. But it's insightful because we rarely ever get the chance to see this level of detail around a specific tournament and a famous pro who's effectively laying his game on the table. So if you're very much into your poker, then this is a very worthwhile read :)

Be warned, this isn't an instructional book, despite the taglines on the back cover which are a little misleading. I recall someone mentioning that their game has deterioriated since they tried to imitate Hansen's style. Do not try to imitate, and if you're a relative novice (like me) or a complete beginner (actually I fall into this latter category!) I wouldn't even consider playing half the hands that Hansen did in this tournament. The key thing that the book can never convey properly, is Hansen's sense of reading the players and the table. Aside from the fact that early in the tournament his opponents generally held bad cards (his words), his decisions were undoubtedly influenced by his read of the mood at the table, and how players were reacting to his moves and other pots. This simply can't be taught - at least not in this book, so you need to take his plays with a pinch of salt in relation to your own game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so crazy after all!!! 5 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
I credit this book with helping me win my first ever full field tournament. Gus has been called all sorts of things ranging from "crazy" to "brilliant" and i have to agree with the latter. His style of play may seem a little counter intuitive, but there is immense method to his madness. What some people don't realise is that in tournament play, luck plays a big factor. When your opponent doesn't have a hand, it will serve you extremely well to represent one yourself. Gus shows you how to recognise when these little situations occur and how to exploit them. I'm not advocating being as loose as a soho hooker, just saying that a little backbone will help immensely. Great book and no, i won't be lending it to anyone!!
