Gus is often mischaracterized as a hyper-aggressive player when he is actually an active or loose player. He plays a lot of pots and his success is a combination of this volatile style and good decision-making after the flop.
I play with Gus in side games where one million dollar swings are very rare, yet I have seen Gus get stuck a million and get even in the same session — three different times!
Title: Born to be Wild
Reason for this song choice
I originally chose Let’s Get It Started by the Black Eyed Peas because it had a rap beat that reminded me of Gus, but I couldn’t resist Born to be Wild since Gus is famous for his loose play.
