All Gus, All the Time (Starting February 21)

by , Feb 5, 2009 | 9:18 am

I know what you’re thinking… I never see enough of Gus Hansen. I wish I could see videos of him going about his daily life. I miss Gus!

Okay, could be wrong on that, but Gus TV is coming to a computer near you anyway, beginning on February 21. It seems that the Great Dane has a side to him that he wants to show to the world and has created Gus TV for just that purpose. “Gus TV is for poker players, by poker players,” the front page of the website says. “When you watch, you support the making of a free poker TV channel.”

The first video will be the much-talked-about boxing match between Hansen and Theo Jorgensen, a fight that will take place live on Gus TV in Copenhagen on the same day as the final table of the EPT Copenhagen. The two will duke it out for 200,000 DKK, which is approximately $35,000 in U.S. buckaroos, though Hansen is so convinced of his physical superiority that he claims he will only accept $25K if he wins.

According to Casino City Times, the boxing match on February 21 will launch the online TV site, after which new content will be posted on a daily basis. Gus fans will see him at tournaments, discussing strategy, and hanging out with friends.

  1. Gus Hansen the boxer

    Gus Hansen does a lot of things to improve poker. If it wasn’t for him, we won’t have seen so many young danish people in big poker tournaments. I’ve watched GusHansen-TV a couple of times and I’ve learned a lot.

    The fight between Gus Hansen and Theo Jorgensen was hilarious. Gus entered the ring in a wheel chair and he looked like he was going to humiliate Theo but Theo won 😀 I hope they are planning to make a similar event at a later date.
