Hello folks, the players I admire are Annette Obrestad/Annette_15, and Péter Traply/Belabacsi, because they started their careers playing free tournaments, just like me, now they have won thousands of dollars playing poker, one day I would like to be like them. ;):cool::oops::LOL:

I think this is quite a real and achievable goal. Everything is in your hands. Good luck :)

Tom Dwan. Did the transition from online crusher to Ultra-High stake LIVE games like it was the most natural and easiest thing in the world.

Phil Lark because of his variance awareness Annette Obrestad because my convo with her was probably the most insightfully intriguing I'd had with a player while I was an events and festival dealer

Belabacsi is still playing regularly online! He's a BEAST!

Myself, I'd have to pick Shaun Deeb & Paul Volpe. Both online NLHE MTT crushers online and both made the transition to Live play after Black Friday AND specializing in Mixed Games. Deeb has won wsop Player of the Year & also taken Runner UP. Volpe has also takin' Runner UP spot.

Steve O'Dwyer - absolute unflappable giant.

Ivey and Dwan also pretty good too.

Poker crush - Jennifer Harman.

Used to love Sammy Farha back in the high stakes days.

Probably most of us, members of our community, have something like this goal. But not all of us will be able to achieve this. I hope that at least a few of us will really succeed.

From my country, the life story of Alejandro "Papo Mc" Lococco is not only exciting, but it is an example to follow that when you want to realize your dreams you must have perseverance and they will come true.

At an international level, I am fascinated by the coldness that Tom Dwan has when playing

And the player I admire most in my life is "the godfather" of poker, the late and enormous Doyle Brunson.

Not sure who could pick Brynn? He's a cheating scumbag. (I like the rest of your picks though... just not Brynn. I can't stand that guy!)

Generally speaking, I am inspired by everyone who has achieved what I strive for in all aspects of life. Pads is one of the few who were at the top and were able to return after a long break.

I really enjoy following Rafael Moraes and Lali Tournier. They are professional players from brazil, both affiliated with Pokerstars. The reason is that in addition to playing, they share a lot of knowledge on their channels, as well as promoting tournaments for players. It's really cool what they do for poker, for the players.

Poker players i admire and have always looked upto and held in the highest of regards.

The main player i admired when i first started playing poker was.

Team Pokerstars Pro: Jason Mercier

Reason I gravitated to Jason was his laid back cool dude appearance.

But he was an absolute end boss online and live in any poker variant you could throw at him.

He won 5 WSOP events prior to 2016 took an extended break from poker to raise his family.

Came back to the poker at the WSOP in 2023 and shipped his 6th braclet not lost a beat.

Lastly the Poker player i admire at the very highest level of the game playing all the biggest buy ins and an absolute Crusher has got to be.

Stephen Chidwick

This guy has got to be one of the best live poker players ive seen.

Cool carm and collected gotta be one of the sharpest minds in the game for sure.

Absolutely fearless and his result at triton speaks volumes.

Not to mention his longevity seems to have been at the top table for ever.

I don't follow players just watch professional players' games and enjoy it not looking at their names but just watching how they play and what maps and in what positions so I just admire myself:I CAN'T laugh:

I remember watching him battle it out with the likes of Shaun Deeb (TedsFishfry) on the Fulltilt Poker tournament tables (FTOPS etc.) back in 2008, 2009. He was a good player back then & played a lot online (screename Stevie444)
