I think the best poker player in the world is the mad genius of poker himself, Mike Caro!

Large Major Tourney - Harrington, No one has been as consistant as Dan in the wsop.

Small Major Tourneys - Negranue, He is eating up the WPT and was Player of the Year at the WSOP by cashing in a bunch of the smaller events.

NL Cash Games - Brunson, This is where he makes his Millions

Limit Cash Games - Harman, To sit at a Table with Jenn, It will cost you $6k just to post the Big Blind. She has won the Largest known Pot in Poker History. She is a Consistant Winner at the Highest Stakes.

7-Stud - Chris Ferguson, Chris has always been stuff at 7-Stud

All the pros seem to give Phil Ivey a lot of respect so id say hes one of the top, even though from what ive seen there are some that are better

I can only say one: Gus Hansen

He can beat every player in the world, when he plays his crap cards.

Do any of these guys play online? If so, do we know where?

If would be great to view a table they are at to see the way they play the game

Overall by far its DANIEL NEGRANEU ! He is awesome, great player.
Plus on the Heads Up Tourney he even called the 8 of di and J of di for his straight flush. They said the chances of someone doing that was 1 in like 2 million and something. PLUS HE IS HOTT!

My favorite though is GUS HANSON, I mean you have to give the guy credit, exspecially when he will call an all-in because he doesn't want to lay down 10 high, and he wins. That is awesome, or luck one. PLUS HE IS HOTT TOO!

Lastly I love Phill Helmuth, just because he is a good player and I love when he gets pissed off, but I don't think he is that HOTT! (lol)

I don't know that there is a difinitive answer. I've seen the "pros" make huge mistakes just like amatures. Watch the 2nd place guy from wsop main event last year. He made two horrible calls. Got unbelievaly lucky. Then rubbed it in the face of the guy he took out. Pro huh? All that said, I think I have to go with Harrington he rarely makes mistakes, real consistant. I wish I had his patience but its tough sometimes.

if i would have to declare the best poker player in the world i would go with possibly phill hellmuth johny chan or dan harrington becuase of consistency but as of right night Greg Raymer is still the WSOP champ and somebody is waiting to dethrone him in 05!

I agree w you Rammer. Those would have been my picks also. I would also put Gus Hansen on the list for least likely person to be sitting across from you because you can't put him on a hand.

there are alot of good players out there. the best would be the guy that gets the cards when he needs them. if i am sitting at a table i would say i am. if you cant say that dont play for money they will push you around.

Doyle is the best who ever played that game and chip was:-( the best allroundplayer that has ever lived (HORSE CHAMPION!!!) and he was the dominator of the biggest Cashgames for the last 20-30 years so don´t forget to mention his name !!!:cool:

I'd have to say Daniel Negreanu. He has incredible instincts and reading skills and when he's on his game he is almost impossible to beat.
