Inside the mind of Gus Hansen...BUT will not improve your poker
on 15 March 2016
Gus Hansen wrote Every Hand after winning the Aussie Millions World Poker Tour in 2007. People have questioned the veracity of his claims- whether he actually did keep such detailed accounts of all is hands during such a big tournament. But having witnessed some of the action which was broadcast, Gus is seen making notes literally after every hand he is involved in (and then some!).
This is therefore an interesting read if one wants to 'see' literally inside the mind of Gus whilst playing in a big tournament which he ultimately wins.Nonetheless this is not a book I'd recommend if one wishes to get into poker strategy which will improve your tournament play.It is widely accepted that while Gus is an absolutely fascinating individual, he is ultimately a 'losing player' at the higher stakes. A reasonably decent read for the poker fanatic but not one which will improve your game.
