He can be seen in the second season of "High Stakes Poker" which GSN began airing 5 June 2006 at 9PM Eastern Time, and in "Professional Poker Tour," a weekly series, from 5 July on the Travel Channel.

He started playing poker in Santa Cruz, California while he was an exchange student in 1993. Prior to poker, he had tried to make a living playing professional backgammon in New York and abroad, but found the field too small for his taste.

As a poker player, he is known for playing a non-standard game involving taking huge risks. However, his poker tournament record is impressive: He is the only player to win four World Poker Tour tournaments. He won the inaugural Poker Superstars Invitational tournament, a one-table event featuring some of the most well-known players today.

He calls himself a professional gambler and has been known to take private bets on various personal athletic challenges (such as running), other than poker and professional sports.

Hansen is notorious for his extremely loose, aggressive play. He has a reputation for raising or bluffing with almost any two cards, which leads to opponents calling (or raising) his bets when he has a legitimate hand. He seems to focus his play on maximizing his implied odds. He also seems skilled at reading opponents and avoiding traps. Perhaps most importantly, he is a probability expert, in command of the equity calculations necessary to play high level poker, which he attributes to his years of playing backgammon.

He was one of the first inductees to the World Poker Tour Walk of Fame in 2004, along with Doyle Brunson and James Garner.

Gus Hansen won the $400,000 Poker Superstars Invitational Tournament and took home the $1,000,000 first prize.

Hansen also made the final table of a European Poker Tour event in Barcelona.
