Gus Hansen shows why he is simply the best strategist in the game. In this amazing DVD Gus talks about bluffing strategies, starting hands, knowing your outs and calculating your odds and how to play the flop, turn and river. Gus makes his living intimidating other players and now he teaches you how to do the same. 54 MINUTES RUNNING TIME. Customer review The most surprising thing I learned was that Gus actually plays the river differently than the majority of players. I've heard Mike Sexton (WPT announcer and poker pro) frequently mention on the WPT tv show, that when it's your turn to bet on the river, you shouldn't bet or raise when you have a MEDIOCRE hand (hands like, middle or bottom pair). Just check or call. The theory is that your opponent will most likely only call or raise with a hand that can beat you, otherwise he'll fold; so why bother betting when you stand to gain nothing, at least 90% of the time? Also, it's sometimes okay to bet on the river if you have a weak hand (like,ace highor any hand that you think your opponent has beateven if it's top pair) because you're trying to bluff your opponent into folding what is most likely the better hand. In addition, making a value bet (highest amount that you think the weaker hand will call you with) with a strong hand is also recommended.
