2011-07-16 17:32:57
God, that's annoying. Fucking Daniel!!!

Remember when he read the straight flush? Fucking ANNOYING!
2011-07-16 17:35:45
fucking annoying?

2011-07-16 23:50:15
It would be fucking annoying to play against him, you know what I mean :)

2011-07-17 01:12:20

2011-07-17 10:29:34
Daniel is awesome, among the all time best players
2011-11-16 23:16:56
The first word he says is Slovenia haha :D
2013-02-06 16:45:36
man tony g is great, he is so funny and he likes to troll brat (phil hellmuth)
2014-04-05 18:27:30
Daniel is a great reader. But he have way to high 14- hand calling. That is Tony much better in. But. Daniel is a better tournament player.

Johnny Chan
2011-07-16 17:42:18
Chans overrated, good, but overrated. he won all his big winnings and money back when anyone who knew a bit about poker could clean up.
2011-07-16 18:30:32
He has a bracelet and your talking trash over the internet

ivey is a beast, for sure one of the best,when he folded the winner flush(pocket 88) against the A7 @wsop 2010(i think) i almost cry :P
2011-07-16 23:52:50
best tournament player or cash player?

two players that are right up there in both categories are phil ivey and durr (tom dwan).

tony g is nothing special.
2011-07-16 18:08:59
Best online - Tom Dwan

Best live - Phil Ivey

Thats only my opinion..
2011-07-16 19:01:11
Totally agry with you, even if Tom Dwan is also good live :) and beats Ivey when he try to bluff etc
But in generaly i'm ok with ya :P
2011-07-16 23:36:01
Gus hansen
2011-07-16 19:11:14
Yeah, it's hard to deal with Hansen.

Phil Hellmuth
2011-07-16 20:09:38
Hellmuth is the best at beating up noobs, he has no A game for the pros though, he also sucks ass at cash game hes just a tournament specialist.
2011-07-16 23:17:28
3 runner-ups this wsop, imo we could say he is the best.
2011-07-16 23:28:26
Here you go again talking trash about legends of poker over the internet.
2011-11-18 05:45:42
Phil Hellmuth plays right. The only thing that happens is that the huge variance of shitty players and their shitty gameplay like call a 3bet with K9 suit is extemely annoying. Phil gets always bad beats not cause he played wrong,but cause the other guys played shit and win by luck all the time. I admire him for his explosions cause that shows he is not hypocrite. most of guys when lose by a stupid guy that called with a random hand say "oh nice play" or "good hand". Phil says what exaclty happened and what exactly the other player is.

Ivey is probably the most clever player. He doesnt make almost any mistake in his play.

dwan and isildur (Blom) at online high stakes actually dont play. they gamble.If I was sponsored by FTP Id do the same.

I like Barry Greenstein, John Juanda and Phil Laak.
2011-07-17 01:02:24
2011-07-17 01:04:09
Well Ivey did one @ Wsop 2009 when he mucked winning hand :D
2011-11-16 21:08:15
He did one of the most stupid mistakes in poker history and the guy says he never makes a mistake..
2011-11-17 18:09:55
2014-04-05 20:10:50
Gus Hansen is quite sick, but Negranu is the best reader
2011-07-16 23:23:38
oh yeah? Negreanu couldnt read this sick game against gus hansen:


IMO, Gus Hansen is the best player, I love the wildcard thinking, thats what makes him soo hard to read, you never know if he has shitty hand or the nuts :D

Post edited 2011-07-17 11:36:46
2011-07-17 11:35:06
yeah, thats what i said.

imo Gus is the best overall player and Daniel the best reader, he's so sick
2011-07-17 22:03:23
gus also down 5mil this year. :)
2013-10-24 10:30:09
Well Gus main income has never been poker, but backgammon.

Daniel no doubt. I'm surprised no1 told Joe Hachem's name :o
2011-07-16 23:54:20
Daniel isnt the greatest, he even admits it himself saying how many players are better than him. And Joe is good but certainly not a top top player and im aussie so you know im not being a fanboy lol.
2011-07-19 18:06:59
Once again, someone with out any knowledge of poker is bashing great poker players.
2011-11-18 05:47:16
hachem is the best reader imo
2013-02-06 16:54:24
Phil Hellmuth obviously!
2011-07-17 00:07:25
lol,phil is a retarded,he is rude with everybody,and acts like hes the best player, and hes a "tournament player"i havent see him win anything @cash game in the past years
2011-07-17 06:26:25
Phil Hellmuth WAS a good player,but now he is nothing special compared to the top pros, whenever i watch his vids i always hear him complain and shit,
2011-07-17 10:32:59
And i enjoy it! <3 Phil :D
Maybe he's not the best player in the world, but he's fun to watch.
2011-07-17 11:00:22
3 second places at 2011 WSOP is nothing special?
2011-11-16 21:04:12
Phil Ivey is my personal favorite!

The best all time poker player is: Stu Ungar. He is the only one who won the World Series of Poker Main Event 3 times
2011-07-17 11:18:44
Polish national team is obviously the best
2011-07-17 11:24:32
I don't play poker, just sometimes watch it on youtube, but my favourite one is Daniel Negreanu
2011-07-17 12:01:31

2011-07-17 16:25:08
Did you know that in Casino Royale, the winning hand has the best 5 hands up in the table?
I mean, the winner wins with nuts (straight flush), the "first" loser looses with the 2nd best hand (poquer) and so on.

Two friends and I made calculations, and the probability to play that hand like it was played was like 1 in 2Billion or something like this.
2013-02-06 16:40:42

2011-07-17 16:40:37

2011-07-19 18:09:43
Fools saying negreanu.... he even admits himself that hes not a top top player.. hes good but thats it. hes my fav as far as nice poker players go and respect wise but skill wise no. there are far better players than him. He just captivates all the noobs with his constant talking at the tables you see on tv and his nice demeanour.
2011-07-19 18:14:14
LOL ? Hater go hate somewhere else . He is an excellent player.
2011-07-19 18:18:42
Yeah. thats why he has people that track him on pokerstars and sit in whenever he starts playing cash. Ivey eats negranu for breakfast and dan even agrees. nuff said. not hating. just saying the truth that people here have no clue about as they just watch the game on TV. but ok believe whatever you want to believe like i said hes a good player but there are so many other top players that own his soul. This is a thread about the best not about the most likeable negreanu is not at the top in the first category but is in the second which is why all the fishies here are bending over.
2011-07-22 10:43:39
First of all there is a difference between online and live poker, shame those people who "track him down as soon as he start playing cash games" have probably never won anything @ live events. It's easy to comment - different to play players of that calibre.

LOL this kid just made my day, your going to compare online poker to live poker? Calm down what did you win a 100$ freeroll and you think you know your poker? Live poker is where the professionals reign supreme and are able to use their skill sets, not online where anyone can download a poker hud and see how players play
2011-11-18 05:49:14
he has lots of tells
he cant beat best players
my impression to him is
when he got nuts
he always choose to play on 2 options
1 tight : check
2 hyper agreesive : cause them to fold
neither get anything more

2011-07-24 16:30:31
that's what people who don't know how to play it say

good poker players win money in the long run, if they lose some money, they know that if they put in the hours they will get it back easily

you see a lot of players at the beggining of important tournament, why there are always the same players at the end? because they have much more skill than the others..

Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth are the best at Hold'em tournaments.

durrr is beast @ online.
2011-11-16 21:05:25
Cash games - Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Patrick Antonius;

Tournament - Phil Helmuth, Phil Ivey and Daniel-Negreanu;

Best overall player - Phil Ivey;

Phil Helmuth is a sore loser sometimes, against amateurs and pro players (I've seen him angry in cash games after being pwned). Almost cries with bad beats from amateurs, but that's part of the game and he doesn't know how to deal with them. However, the man has 11 bracelets. He knows a thing or two about donkments. Errrr, tournaments.

2011-11-16 21:15:27
I'm with you on Helmuth. Point is he calls it out over himself. He is the player that traps the most. and therefore he gets bad beats on the river quite often too...
2011-11-16 21:23:08
Tournaments - Phil Helmuth, Daniel Negreanu
Online - Durrr, Isildur1
Cashgame - Ivey, Minh Ly
Overall - TonyG!

Phil Hellmuth is the big boss TEXAS HOLDEM

2011-11-16 22:41:38
legend - Doyle Brunson but he is too slow and defennsive atm
cash games - tom dwan
tournaments - Phil Ivey (but he is very sick in cash games too)
the best trash talker - Phil Hellmuth+tonyg:D
overall imo phil ivey...he is awesome

but there are a lot of awesome players...gus hanses,daniel negreanu

no man, you are wrong, hellmuth is a good player but not the best.Hellmuth have a style that is very impressive but he ins't the best
2011-11-18 13:01:04
so, why he has the most WSOP bracelets? bcoz of luck? i'll say that he were very unlucky during 2011 wsop, having three 2nd place finishes. He is very great player. Sometimes too emotional, but it's his style what we all love a lot. Anyway, he will forever come in the history of poker.

no doubt, but comparing like negreanu I think he's a little bit low. Negreanu is a full-player. dwan is such a great player too, hellmuth said that too. Hes poker face is like the best in the world. Hellmuth alot of winning braclets no doubt good player, still negreanu have more skill..

Id say Phil Ivey is the best

If Negreanu took it seriously, or changed his mentality, he has the ability to be the best, sometimes his reads are insane

But there are heaps of people, like Helmuth, Dwan, Hansen
2011-11-17 15:25:33
Phil Ivey is best no doubt he is among the best in almost any form of poker

you put Helmuth on the same bag as Dwan and Hansen?
Helmuth is really bad because poker has changed a lot and he hasn't adjusted to that and he is always crying..

while this might be true, he still wins a lot. It's just they seem to show him losing a lot because they think that will bring the ratings. His record speaks for itself.
2011-11-17 15:55:46
You cant mention the greats of poker and leave out Hellmuth, hes a riot to watch and his track record is legit.
2011-11-18 05:51:42
he was very good some time ago but now poker has changed a lot if he doesn't adjust he will always suck

Tom dwan laughs in Hellmuth's face:
Simply I wanted to share with you,guys! :)
2011-11-17 16:26:17
Daniel Negreanu is a poker king but i like patrik antonius too
2011-11-17 18:14:10
nowadays... negreanu no doubt

dwan is also a good, good player.
2011-11-17 18:29:20
One more thing, you can't say that hellmuth is the best player, he's a good player but not the best
2011-11-17 18:39:07
I have no idea, so I'll just say REAL.
2011-11-18 05:49:21
Is there actually any info or whatever on what kind of stakes he plays :)? Just interested.
2011-11-18 18:45:01
GOAT is Doyle hands down, much respect and appreciation to what he did for holdem scene since he was in his university days. As far as the best now, Ivey has to take it, such a feared player.
2011-11-18 05:50:32
ye, Ivey is very very good, my favorite player but negreanu already passed him in the amount of winning money in tournaments and thats a fact inst it ?
2011-11-18 13:03:01
u think negreanu is better than ivey?
negreanu if afraid to play him cuz he knows that ivey has such a big edge on, he has on almost anyone..
2011-11-18 18:22:02
ivey is like a monster, man, he's my favorite player but I think negreanu is better.
2011-11-18 18:42:12
Dwan is the best holdem player, but Ivey owns him pretty much in all the other games.

Hellmuth is the best tournament player.
2011-11-18 06:08:21
Daniel Negreanu.

So funny to read all the answers in this thread. Goes to show how people get false information by only watching pokershows on tv.

Phil Hellmuth is not even near the top, he probably isn't even top500. He is only decent in a large field tournaments where there's a lot of inexperienced players. His fundamentals are reeeaally bad. Same things applies to most of the old school -players. They simply refuse to admit that the younger generation has better fundamentals and knowledge of the game theory overall. Of course there are exceptions.

Pretty much no one here has mentioned the likes of ie. jungleman (Daniel Gates, who's prolly the best nlhe hu player in the world atm), Phil Galfond (most likely the best player in plo, used to be pretty much the best in nlhe too) or Patrik Antonius. There are also TONS of great online players who are so good that it's hard to tell who is better (sauce123, stinger88, toweliestar, the dang brothers, 0Human0, Skjervoy, the list goes on and on).

oops, tl;dr. I thought I'd write a tiny post but got carried away a little :DD

edit: forgot to mention: sure Phil Ivey is one of the best, if not the best player overall. I also talked only about cash game -players (mostly nlhe and plo) just because I think it's the purest form of poker and I think just about everyone agrees.

Judd Trump (born 21 August 1989) is an English professional snooker player from Bristol. He enjoyed considerable success in youth tournaments before turning professional in 2005. On 3 April 2011, Trump won his first ranking title, beating Mark Selby 10–8 in the final of the China Open. Following this success in China, he reached the final of the 2011 World Snooker Championship where he was defeated by John Higgins and went on to win the 2011 UK Championship where he defeated Mark Allen 10–8 in the final.
Trump was English Under-13 and Under-15 champion, and reached the World Under-21 Championship semi-finals at the age of 14. At the same age, he became the youngest player ever to make a competitive 147, beating Ronnie O'Sullivan's record from 1991.[5]
In the 2005/06 season he joined the professional tour, and at the Welsh Open became the youngest player ever to qualify for the final stages of a ranking tournament. He reached the same last-48 stage for the China Open, losing 4–5 to Michael Holt, although this was designated the final qualifying round and was actually played in Prestatyn, Wales.
Trump became the third youngest player ever to reach the World Championship, at the 2007 event, by beating James Wattana 10–5, (with champions Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O'Sullivan respectively younger, and also with China's Liu Chuang) is one of only four 17-year-olds to feature at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre. Trump played the 2005 champion and 6th seed, Shaun Murphy, in the first round, losing 6–10 despite having led 6–5.
Trump did not build on this form in the 2007/08 season, only reaching the last 32 of the Welsh Open by beating Joe Swail. He missed out on the World Championship after a 9–10 loss to Swail, having led 9–7.
Things changed for the 2008/09 season when Trump reached the venue stages of the first four events. At the Grand Prix he benefited from Graeme Dott's withdrawal before defeating Joe Perry 5–2 in the last 16, despite admitting to not playing well and Perry feeling that he had outplayed Trump.[6] Then came the biggest win of his career so far, defeating Ronnie O'Sullivan 5–4 to reach the semi-final, in which he was defeated 6–4 by John Higgins. He beat double world champion Mark Williams to qualify for the 2008 Bahrain Championship. He won a qualifying tournament to gain entry into the 2009 Masters Tournament as the only qualifier, but was defeated by Mark Allen in the first round. He failed to qualify for the World Championship, losing 8–10 to Stephen Lee having led 6–3. Lee considered this match to be a local derby, as he is from nearby Trowbridge. He also noted that Trump had not followed the custom of apologising for fluked shots during the match, and concluded "all I've heard about for the last five years is how good he is. Today he blew a 6–3 lead and hopefully that will stick with him".[7] Trump ended the season in the Top 32 of the rankings for the first time. He was coached for a short time by Tony Chappel.
Trump also qualified for the 2009 Premier League, by winning the 2009 Championship League. In the event he won four of his six matches, including a 4–2 win over Ronnie O'Sullivan and finished second in the League table. However, he lost 5–1 to O'Sullivan in his semi-final.
However, the 2009/2010 season in ranking events was less successful for Trump as he failed to progress beyond the last 32 in any of the tournaments. In January 2010, Trump joined Romford-based snooker agency Grove Leisure.[8]
In the 2010/2011 season, he reached his first professional ranking event final at the 2011 China Open. He defeated former Masters champion Mark Selby 10–8 to win his first major title,[9] and provisionally climb into the top 16 of the world rankings. On his way to winning the China Open final, Trump also made his 100th competitive century break.
Trump had already qualified for the World Championship when he won the China Open, and was drawn against reigning champion Neil Robertson in the first round, whom he defeated 10–8.[10] In subsequent rounds, he knocked out Martin Gould 13–6, Graeme Dott 13–5 and Ding Junhui 17–15 to qualify for his first World Championship final.[11] In the final Trump lost 15–18 to John Higgins.[12]
Judd started the season with a 3–5 loss to Mark Davis in the 2011 Australian Goldfields Open first round.[13] However, this disappointment was soon forgotten as he won the 2nd PTC of the Season, beating Ding Junhui 4–0 in the final at a virtual home venue of the South West Snooker Academy.[14] Judd then lost 5–1 against Stuart Bingham in the Shanghai Masters first round.[15] Trump finished runner-up to Neil Robertson in the 8th PTC event of the season[16], but immediately rediscovered his winning touch by capturing Event 9 by defeating Ronnie O'Sullivan 4–3 in the final in Antwerp, Belgium in just over an hours worth of play.[17] He would later top the Order of Merit after all twelve PTC events had been played, thus qualifying for the 2012 Finals.[18]
On 11 December 2011, Trump won his second ranking event tournament, the 2011 UK Championship at the Barbican Centre in York. Trump beat Dominic Dale 6-4 in the last 32, before winning the final two frames of the second round to edge out Ronnie O'Sullivan, 6-5. After the match Trump claimed that he had been "outplayed" and was "lucky" to have got through.[19] He then dispatched Stephen Maguire 6-3[20] and faced Neil Robertson in the semi-finals. The semi-final was a tight and nervy affair, with Trump stating afterwards that he believed Robertson was trying to stifle his natural game by, "slowing it down" and "making things awkward", but nevertheless the Bristolian triumphed, 9-7 to reach his first UK final.[21] In the final he played Mark Allen and trailed 1-3 early on in the best-of-19 frames match. However, Trump then produced a match-defining run of seven straight frames to take an 8-3 lead. Despite a strong fightback from Allen, who won five of the next six frames to trail just 8-9, Trump went on to clinch the 18th frame with a break of 91 and win the final by 10 frames to 8.[22] Six-time winner of the event, Steve Davis, said that Trump's performances during the championship had shown that he was "spearheading his generation" of snooker players.[23] The victory took him up to a career-high world ranking of 5.[24]
He continued his fine form by reaching the semi-finals of the Masters in January. He beat Stuart Bingham in the first round and O'Sullivan once more in the quarters 6–2, to make his record against the three-time World Champion five wins and two defeats, from their seven meetings in tournament play.[25] He played Robertson in the last four for the second successive major event and it was the Australian who exacted his revenge from the defeat suffered in York a month earlier, as he triumphed 6-3.

If you would have asked me back in 200-2005 era, I would have said Gus Hansen, without a doubt, I loved his agressive style, but he didnt do that everytime, really hard dude to read, he was able to do sick plays like pushing ALL-IN with 7-2 off suit AFTER the flop was out and stuff, but he didnt do that too often, he could play solid and choose his spots to do so, loved the way he mixed up his game and was unreadable, basicly.

If you ask me now, then definetly Daniel Negreanu or Phil Ivey, why is that Daniel has the sickest reading ability of the opponent and he is such an open and humble guy, which I love about people, Phil Ivey, well, the record speaks for itself, 8 WSOP (World Series Of Poker) titles, and ended in below the money bubble to earn cash of total of 11 times solely only on WPT and EPT (World Poker Tour & European Poker Tour) and out of thoes 11, he reached totally of the mindboggeling number of 8 final tables, solely on thoes 2 events.

Daniel Negreanu is the best poker player imo (Best reads, best moves)
But some others players are great like Phil Helmutt, Phil Ivey, Tony G. and obviously Betrand "Elky" Grospellier ... ^^

2014-11-25 13:28:31
daniel collman is the best but arrogant
2014-11-25 13:54:09
Phil Ivey,Patrick Antonius, Tom Dwan and Daniel Negreanu top 4

Anyone that knows poker knows that any of the famous live players like negreanu, antonius, hansen, dwan wouldn't even be considered to be one of the best players in the world. Only Phil Ivey has shown he could beat everyone online for millions and that was years ago. He doesn't play enough now online to show that he's at the top.
