For me Humberto Brenes is not entertaining, he is just annoying. Phil Helmuth, Mike Matusow and Shawn Shiekan at the same table is entertaining.
My favorite player to watch is Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu and Sam Farha.

Johnny Chan

I enjoy watching Johnny Chan. Whenever he's in the game, you just expect that he's going to win.

In terms of entertainment value, Hevad Khan probably is right up there with Humberto. Anyone seen his response to winning a hand in the 2007 wsop ME? Insane.

(Yay first post :) )

Entertainment, would have to be Mike Matasow.

If I want to watch real poker, I watch Chris Ferguson.

By far daniel negreanu(not sure of spelling srry)....i like to think that i play a lot like him....loves to see a flop simply because he thinks he can outplay a lot of players after the flop irregardless of his hand....whether hes winning or losing u can see that hes havin fun(and lets be honest the moneys nice but we all play poker because we enjoy it) also Phil ivey(great poker face)

Personally i like watching Daniel Negreanu play poker.

But if i just want to get some kicks in, i like watching Mike Matisow and Phil Helmuth.

Gus Hansen is my favorite player to watch. He has moments of brilliance and moments of donkeyness.

Phil Ivey is the most skilled player but he's smart enough to stay off of TV... thus adding to his skill.

Online, Barry Greenstein is the most entertaining, though... his chats are priceless.

Yesterday, in the heads up WCOOP event, one of the players he knocked out asked him what he would have done if he would have lost to him... Greenstein's response, "I would have killed myself."

As in most sports, I would rather play it than watch it.

However, Chris Ferguson is my pick with Honorable mention for Clonie (nice rack) Gowen.

i like watching Daniel, he has the skill and seems to enjoy himself at every table. I do like to watch Phil Helmuth explode occasionally. And I can't stand to watch Scotty Nguyen.

Entertainment value:
Scotty Nguyen baby!
I also like Men the Master and Phil Laak.

Poker skills:
I have more and more appreciation for Eric Seidel's play the more I see of him, but he's not "entertaining" per se.

No comment on everyone's favorite calling station...
