• A Couple of of Poker’s Charming Players

    [ English ]

    Beyond a doubt millions and millions of people strive to be the next "mega star" in poker, but here is a short list of four of the more well known "great pros" of the game. Even though "nice" is connected with their names when you are at a poker table it is "no more Mr. Nice guy" up until they have removed you out of the competition!

    Daniel Negreanu

    In 2004, his tourney payouts added up to more than $4.4 million and he came away with 2 highly respected awards in the WSOP Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Competition Player of the Year. In Feb 2006 he was named Card Player’s Preferred Poker Player. He still has the humility to speak to his fans about how they will be able to advance their own game.

    Howard Lederer

    Called "The Professor" and brother of fellow poker professional Annie Duke. His success has lead to him making an instructional video called "Secrets of No Limit Hold’em" and also hosting a tournament poker show for Fox. As of Two Thousand and Five, his total life winnings exceed $2.7 million.

    Scotty Nguyen

    Scott is one of the most active players in professional poker and from Two Thousand and 2004 he ranked in the money in well over one hundred competitions. He is noted for saying "yeah baby" throughout poker matches and also coined the phrase "that’s poker baby" when alluding to a especially bad defeat. As of Two Thousand and Six, his life time earnings are almost 6 million dollars.

    Chris Ferguson

    Chris has won five World Series of Poker titles with two of his wins coming in 2003. Chris has the nickname "Jesus" as a result of his trademark long hair and beard, and is able to throw cards quick enough to slice through bananas and pickles. As of Two Thousand and Five his total poker tournament earnings exceeded $5 million.
