My favorite player to watch is Mike Matusow. You always know he's going to start something at the table. I guess it'd be easy to hate Mike if you had to sit in with him. He's a great live game bluffer too.

I have a lot of favorites but I always enjoy watching Scotty Nguyen. He's so nice to the other players and seems to genuinely enjoy the game. Scotty, Chris, Daniel...Much rather watch the happy guys play than the whiners and drama kings/queens.

Daniel Negreanu is my favorite player. He is always calm and happy no matter how much he is winning or how much he is loosing.

Daniel Negreanu, he's calm and cool through and through, and even better, he's Canadian.

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu is my favorite. I love his table presence and would love to play at a table with him, even though he would take all of my chips. He is absolutely hilarious. Also, I love watching him guess other people's cards with near pin-point accuracy. I wish I could hear the inner-monologue of a person as Daniel guesses their cards exactly.

Annie Duke, because she's brilliant and a poker goddess.

Least favorite: Burt Boutin, who seems like an assmonkey.

Depends on the criteria :D

If it's pure entertainment value, it's hard to go past Phil Laak and Phil Hellmuth. All round though, I'm a big fan of Scotty Nguyen, Gus Hansen and Howard Lederer.

I can't believe it's taken 16 posts for someone to state the obvious...

Doyle Brunson, the Godfather of modern poker! Super System unlocked the mysteries of poker and introduced No Limit Hold Em as a mainstream parlor game, not just an exotic variation for Vegas and high-stakes rounder rooms. The elder statesman of the game, he never fails to carry himself with grace, dignity, and good humor. It was pure Doyle when he lost his temper after a bust-out in season one of High Stakes Poker and called Ted Forest "that idiot", only to take advantage of the first on-air opportunity in season two to apologize to Ted face-to-face across the table.

And even at age 74, he's still one of the deadliest big game players in the world. Final table at the 2007 wsop World Championship Pot Limit Omaha and a cash in the $5,000 HORSE. Still plays almost every day in the legendary "Big Game" in "Bobby's Room" at the Bellagio, where the minimum buy-in is $80K and players routinely sit down with $200K-$300K. Doyle has permanently retired the title of "The Man". There should be a special rake at every casino table, television tournament, and home game in America that's sent straight to Doyle to say "thanks for everything".

Sam Farha. I like his aggressive style. He has that cold gangster-ish stare.
