In this article, we will tell you about the most prominent poker legends, as well as how exactly these players have earned such a portion of fame.
Top 5 Best Poker Players
1. Doyle Brunson
This player is considered to be the “Godfather” of modern poker. After all, he was at the origins of modern Texas Hold’em, when all others preferred to play Seven Card Stud. In 1988, he was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame, for his achievements and victories. Brunson is not only a good player but also the author of several books, the most famous of which is “Super System” on how to properly build your game to get the highest payouts by controlling emotions, watching other plays, and numerous similar tips.
2. Phil Ivey
This poker legend is considered by many to be the best player of our time. He won more than $22 million in his entire career, and this is only in offline tournaments, not counting the games on the Internet.
3. Daniel Negreanu
This Canadian player with Romanian roots is probably the most recognizable person in the gambling world today. He always represents “PokerStars” in their advertising campaigns. A distinctive feature of this legendary player is his incredible ability to feel his opponent, to find an approach to them, and understand what cards they are playing against him. Negreanu perfectly understands the psychology of the game, he knows how to “read” a person during communication and to find out exactly how he or she plays poker.
4. Phil Hellmuth
He is known worldwide as the man who was able to win a record number of WSOP bracelets – 13. Interestingly, Hellmuth considers himself to be the most prominent player in poker history. He has made the most of the final tables at the big tournaments and, according to him, he could have won every tournament he took part in if there was no element of luck in poker.
5. Chris Ferguson
This player is nicknamed “Jesus” because of his long brown hair and modest table behavior. After all, even though he was able to win almost $10 million, he behaves very quietly and calmly at the table, which makes it almost impossible to “read” him. Long hair, a beard, and a cowboy hat are all that his rivals see at the table.
Many people would like to win the title of the best poker player. However, a really brilliant poker career has been built by a limited circle of people. Nevertheless, such a chance is really given to everyone. Just try your luck!
