This is a discussion on Country with the best poker players? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Hello friends. What country do you consider to have the best poker players? My opinion would be Spain
Obviously it’s Canada because that’s where I live. 🤪
Seriously I’d have to probably say Brazil, with the US close behind. You’ll always find great players from every country so how do you rate the country as a whole? Based on the best players or the average skill of all players?
The US does have a lot of top players but is that because they just have more? Has poker been more commonly played there than other countries? My observations are that Russia has many (another large country of course), the UK definitely, and Brazil always seems to figure in there.
