My favorite poker player is tom "Durr" dwann. To me he is very lucky and very brave and i like that he always has this kind of dumbfounded look on his face as if he doesnt understand what is going on when in actuality he is steps ahead of the opponent most times. He can be aggressive alot of times, but he knows when to slow down. Alot of pros have 1 style of play, agro, trapping, slow playing, cautious, Tom can switch etween any of these modes at anytime, which is why he is such a dangerous player. He might not have as much personality as daniel or hellmuth, or green or mike the mouth, but he has beaten all of them at some point in his career, and the hand with him and ivey for over a million in cash was epic, it was epic to see how he trapped a poker god, and Ivey is a poker god, dont care what anyone says, the man is really that good, maybe even etter than durr. I have also een watching isuldur, he is very aggressive and also very fearless with some amazing player reading skills.
So who do you guys have??
Best mind I have seen for the game. Lots of people are good.
+1 Although some others also come to mind. Chris Ferguson seems like a pretty down to earth guy too.
I am also going to go out on a limb and also say Phil Hellmuth. Yeah, I know: he blows up a lot and complains/insults a bit too much for most players liking. However, he is usually correct in his analysis. I admire that ability - even if his table image is of someone who rages. A part of me definitely thinks this is an act too though: you know? Just a way to get people to call his big bets. He "appears" to be on tilt, so maybe you'll call his big bet: but then of course he has the nuts and you bust if you call.
My favorite player is Daniel Negreanu ... without a doubt ... the things I admire him is that when I have seen him play in live tournaments ... he has great control over everything that happens at the table, he observes every move your opponents make and have a great read on all of them ... play with great confidence ...!
my favorite player of all time is Doyle Brunson because he was one of the first players of the 1960s who kept their reputation in casinos but also on online poker tables. The grandfather of poker knew everything about hold’em. Doyle is a benchmark in the industry because he has faced most of the great players. It should be noted that he also has a WPT title and two world champion titles to his credit.
