i voted for Helmuth, even though he's an arrogant prick, the guy is entertaining

i really hate Negranu, not sure why.

I like Ivey, Chan and Scottie Nguyn too

I voted for Chan. I've liked him ever since I saw Rounders some several years back. Though his scenes are short, I loved the references to him. That said, he was the first player I ever really picked up on.

Negreanu is my favorite. He's the kinda person I would want to play poker against simply because he's a character. Also, I think he is one of the better players at reading other players, if only the guy could listen to his instincts more often he'd probably be considered even better...

Ferguson is probably my next favorite, simply because I think he might be the best odds player in Hold Em right now, and its just enjoyable to watch someone with that kind of grasp on the mathematical aspects of poker at work.

Gus, Negreanu, Laak are my top 3 with Ivey rounding out the next one. John D'Agostino is one of my favs too, but that's because I used to talk to him on AIM before he became a known name ;-D

He's absoutely amazing at putting people on a hand. Its scary when he just blurts out what his opponent has. It seems he's right 90% of the time.

anyone see the new WPT the other night? D'Agastino made a SICK call against Michael Mizrachi with Kings. Put him on the flush draw and called it out loud. Definately just sick.

It was hard not to vote for Scotty Nguyen's mullet, but I voted for Negraneau (or however the hell you spell it).

I can't believe there are as many Ivey supporters here as there are. He was who I thought of immediately after reading the title because the guy always conducts himself as a professional and has such a calm demeanor that it intimidates you just to watch him play, let alone putting your chips in against him. Also intimidating is Ferguson. That guy is old west made modern and you have to remember if you beat him he can always pull a special made poker card out of his boot and throw it at you from across the room and kill you! :-o

Really? I admittedly don't watch that much poker but I was pretty sure that was Matusow.



it sounds a lot more like something that Helmuth would say than what the mouth would say.
