He's so overrated, his win/tournament ratio is among the worst among all the elite players...he gets raped in Poker Superstar every year. Only reason you think that is because of all the TV time he gets, he's top 10 most likely...but not even close to as good as the 5 players I've named.

Johnny Chan or Phil Ivey are the two best poker players, Chan is the best heads-up player ever probably and Ivey is simply the most complete poker player in the world.

Vietnamese players are the best, these other wannabes are just pretenders, JC TRan, Nam Le, Tuan Le, MEn Nguyen, Scotty baby Nguyen, Mimi Tran and otheres.

You cant fabricate 10 World series Bracelets, Only fat boy Chan and Old man Brunson have as many and both those guys will not get another one. Hellmuth is also WSOP all time Cash out leader and #1 on the Cash made list in WSOP...

How could it possibly be an insult? He's an amazing poker player, and he's ridiculously handsome.

Anyways, Gus is a fav of mine too. Mostly just because he's entertaining. Who else raises on the small blind with 4-6 offsuit? Negreanu another one, because of the way he just chats people up, and his ability to seemingly read exactly what his opponent holds.

Deeb's funny too, but for different reasons than Danny. :)

They say that about me cause it looks like I pass gas on every single flop. It throws people off alot. But it works. I raise pretty crazy shyt too, but fold if I get busted.
I've had a good 06. I've literally raked in 3 or 4 times the amount I bought in. It's so good cause my wife actually bank rolls me sometimes so that I can come home with extra cash for her. I f I don't she's not worried cause I've come home a winner more than a loser. House games though. But took home some decent pots.

How did I forget Negreanu? Nobody wins with the kind of hands he does. Best post-flop player on the planet.

Its kind of hard to pick the Best Poker Player IMO.
But does anyone remember Tuan Le? This guy was sick when he was hot a couple of years ago in the World Poker Tour. I would have to say that he was the best that I saw (atleast when he was hot). In the 3 final tables that he was on, the dude rolled over Poker greats like David Negraneu, Phil Ivey, Eli Elezra, Humberto Brenes and brother Alex Brenes, J.C Tran, David Pham, John Phan and Hasan Habib, These guys are all House hold names to the average T.V. poker fan.

Can't stand this guy. Whenever I see him it just makes me wish I was there to punch him in his smug face.

This is the second time you've came in talking about how you are great at poker and/or are your favorite player. No one cares.
