for sure Phil Ivey, his face rarely delivers the game that he has in hand

Chris Ferguson, imo. There's a nice video of him showing the same exact face when bluffing, semibluffing, and strong.
That being said, poker faces are very overrated. Pro poker players know that it's the other parts of the body that give away the most tells, and obviously betting patterns are the most reliable.

re: Poker & Poker Face
^^^ Great point. I also believe "poker faces" are vastly overrated. Some of the best in the game dont have a poker face and dont hide their emotions. thats what throws you off. and like james said its other parts of the body. twitches of the muscles, how many times you blink, your facial reactions, those are the giveaways.

You cant say that
These days every one at the poker table keeps the same face. Although i dont play alot of live cards, if your talking about pros, they all have great poker faces because they never change. Unlike ametuers like me i start laughing when im bluffing llol. thank god for online poker i say lol
