"Sk Out On Me" at FTP is an awesome player, doesn't get a lot of credit because he plays mostly low stakes, but i've seen him turn $1.26 into $60 in 3 days, without playing like a complete idiot. Next to that, Marcel Luske, great player, and is very comedic.

LEE WATKINSON...........................no,just kidding:D

I think Phil Ivey is the best player right now,just because....well,he has SKILLS.

Scotty Nguyen all the way. His mouth has won him a wpt and a wsop main event. (Same can be said about Jamie Gold to a certain extent, even though being the luckiest person in a room filled with people one week straight helped him out a little...):rolleyes:

Seeing the question is who's your favorite and not who do you think is the best. My answer is Phil Hellmuth. If I'm starting a game he's on the top of the invite list. You know it will have a few laughs.

i would have to say Phil Ivey, incredible ability to read a situation, and is the youngest to have gotten to 5 bracelets.

Daniel Negreanu is my fave because of his good attitude. Even in defeat he keeps his composure and pride intact.

two pages and no respect for the late great 3 peat WSOP champion?
I'm not going to mention name, but most know who I'm talking about.
If he was still around it would have been nice to see him go up against Daniel N. both great table readers.

I have to go with Chan because he never seems surprised by anything that happens. He can talk or play completely silent. Great at adapting his game to suit the situation. I also like watching Gus Hansen because his play is so singular. I used to dismiss him as a random suckout artist but I swear he knows when that 9 2 is going to come up big.

Wish he still played. I enjoyed watching him set up his retirement.

As for the guys we see on TV I would have to say Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey are my favorites.

Can't believe this didn't get a response. Even Doyle Brunson and Chip Reece would say that there was never a better heads up player than the late, great Stuey "the kid" Unger. Tragic end to such a brilliant player.

Love Gus Hansen because he likes to mix it up and play lots of hands.

I personally like Negrenau. He seems to have an uncanny ability to figure peoples hold cards. Just good all around poker instinct.

Negreanu, because he's the best and is very smart.

Even smarter is Barry Greenstein...intellectually that is.. But I like him as well simply because he donates all his winnings to charity. That's very impressive, don't see anyone else doing that.
