I am giving my opinion but I want also you to give me your opinions, for me the best chess player of all time is Gus Hansen. But the problem is that I dont know too much about poker players in nineteenth century qnd older, do you have any Idea about that?

Ever heard of Stu Ungar? Yeah he had a lot of problems, got into a lot of trouble, lived a fast life and died before his time...…………..but if we're just talking about poker skills here?...…….than yeah. Then I would say "Kid Poker" Daniel Negreanu but Daniel himself said the best was Phil Ivey.

So Dead? Stu Ungar...….Alive? Phil Ivey.:D

It's Phil Hellmuth. He's got 15 wsop bracelets. If not it's Phil Ivey, he's got 10 WSOP bracelets and he's also won several major high rollers.

Good poker

In poker there is no turning back. Either you look like a warrior or you run away like a coward:mad:

It's probably Daniel Negreanu and Gus Hansen. They have achieved impressive results.

I can’t say who is the best, but mu favourite poker player is Phil Ivey. He is really magician with cards.

I would have to say Doyle, stu ungar or from recent times Phil (either ivey or helmuth you choose)

An argument could be made for Dan negraneu his ability to read is close to scary

Good luck out there

Also as for me - this is Daniel Negreanu. Probably because I've heard the most about him

Phil Helmuth is probably the best tournament player.
Phil Ivey and Garrett Adelstein the best Hold'em cash game player.
Negreanu probably the best in general including all variants in cash game and tournament.

Stu Ungar. The difficulty trying to choose someone from the modern era is that Hold em has dominated and so the references are usually all for that game and not considering all other forms of poker. The best all round player was Chip Reese.

Former American poker player and gambler Stuart “Stu” Ungar played poker, blackjack and gin rummy throughout his life. He is widely considered as the best Texas hold 'em poker and :cool:of all time. He is the only person to win Amarillo Slim's Super Bowl of Poker three times.

If Pele is the best football player, then the best chess player, in my opinion, is Emanuel Lasker. Well, the best poker player is, of course, James Bond)
