Do you really want him sitting to your right? I would rather have him on my left, lol.

For me:

Me
Tony G. - funny
Sammy Farha - aggressive
Daniel Negreanu - the thinker
Johnny Chan - the champ
The Mouth - funny squared when sitting with Tony
Gus Hanson - just because
Gab Caplan (Mr. Carter) - TV star

My dream table based on entertainment and/or man-lust value:

Seat 1 - Mike Matusow (for the attitute, annoying chatter and "big boy pout")
Seat 2 - Daniel Negreanu (what dream table would be complete without him?)
Seat 3 - Erick Lindgren (because he's such a cute teddy bear)
Seat 4 - Me (snuggled between Erick and Gus) :)
Seat 5 - Gus Hansen (poker hotness defined)
Seat 6 - Tony G (so he can berate me about raising his blind)
Seat 7 - Phil Hellmuth (does this need an explanation?)
Seat 8 - Humberto Brenes (all you can eat!)
Seat 9 - Gabe Kaplan (smart, funny and entertaining)
Seat 10 - Tobey Maguire (celebrity cutie)

Or a table of those who deserve it due to pure poker greatness (in no particular order):

Allen Cunningham
Ted Forrest
Daniel Negreanu
Dan Harrington
Chip Reese
Paul Magriel
Phil Hellmuth
Jennifer Harman
Doyle Brunson
Michael Mizrachi

Andy Beal

I know this is a "dream" thread, but I thought Beal only played the "Corporation" in limit games. CardPlayer does not even list him in their player database, so he has not had any cashes in any tournaments.

So that alone would definitely make yours a dream table! :D

That's the whole point, it's a dream final table, so anyone can be there. (Plus, I can almost guarantee none of these final tables will actually materialize in the immediate or late futures, because even witht eh great poker names on the lists, most likely, there is no way that they would all be able to make it through the large fields during the same year.

But on a side note, my thought was that Beal quit poker altogether after Phil Ivey took him for about $15 million or something ridiculous like that in one of their HU matches. Now that is owning someone.

Ivey never played Beal, but Lederer did. So did Doyle and Todd Brunson. (That's why I included Lederer and Doyle) BTW, it wasn't EXACTLY $15 million but it was a ridiculous number that was won/lost.

I normally have a great memory in poker, and in general when I hear something. And, I'm pretty sure Phil Ivey ended up playing Beal HU, because it was the talk of Vegas when it happened. All the poker players, pro, amateur, ect. were talking about how Ivey took the Beal for some ridiculous number, $15-$16 million.

Here, info in this thread https://www.cardschat.com/forum/general-poker-13/ivey-wins-16-million-off-beal-79564/#post497929 to keep on topic with this thread, post any comments about that event in that thread please. Thanks.

I dont know about Jennifer harman..she is good at limit games, NLHE isnt her cup of tea. But atleast you didnt put Jamie Gold..

My one question though, Where is Phil Ivey? You can't tell me that he doesnt deserve it.

Hey, its the person's personal opinion on who they think would be the most entertaining or derserving to watch. I don't think there's any need to critique his picks and validate why someone should or shouldn't be there. This isn't reality, its just something someone would like to see happen.

This table would have it all...poker legends, new age wonderkids, the first woman to make the Main Event final table, anything-goes maniacs, and mathematical surgeons. A smorgasboard of styles and personalities. I'd pay to watch this final table.
