Phil Ivey
He continues to beat the biggest games. I saw him play in Atlantic City when he was a kid. He played only the biggest games then and he still does 40 years latter. I'd be interested to find out if he ever played the lower limits and for how long?

I think that the best poker player of all time is Doyle Brunson :)


Doyle Brunson is a great poker player in my opinion. But as poker evolved and due to his age, he was unable to keep up. But he is still a great player.

Phil Ivey plays poker coldly and without shame, other weaker players are afraid of him.

Danyel Negreanu is a great poker player, if not the best. He has a good hand reading, plays cold and safe. He knows how to involve an opponent.

Phil Ivey.

I don't think Doyle Brunson even belongs in the top 10

Hello.
My favorite players is Liv Boeree and Vanessa Russo. These are professional players who have achieved excellent results and proved that women can also be professionals.

He does not play in long tournaments any more, but in short spurts, he has the same skills...he still plays in some of the biggest cash games in Bobby's Room in the Bellagio.

Depends on if you're taking overall or just Hold-em. If it's Hold-em then I have to go with Hellmuth. As much as I and most people dislike him, you can't argue with the results. Overall player in all games, Phil Ivey.

Two good poker players. They are at the top of professional poker today.


I did not say Doyle is a bad poker player. Just in my opinion not in top10. I often watched High Stakes poker on TV. And Doyle couldn't play against aggressive players like Dwan. He was too scared of him :)

Hi.
My favorite professional player is Jason Mercier. He has a great style of play and I consider him the best poker player.
Good luck.

In my view Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey are some of the best poker players. But, of course, there are also other very strong professional players.

I think that Daniel Negreanu has a special gift for knowing what the opponent thinks, although as he is human, he can sometimes fail ...:cool::cool:

Stu Unger, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey - I would pick these three, though my opinion does shift from time to time with all of the talent out there.
