    Are you serious? Neither Danny Nguyen or Jay Martens were any good. Gus Hansen and Men Nguyen were the best at that table.

    Ted Forrest is my favorite poker player. Then Jennifer Harman, DN, and Phil Ivey.

    For any TV poker tournament, I prefer watching the old-school names over the new internet pros who seem to come out of nowhere then melt back away. The guys who have some personality and the handful of ladies too: Jen Harman etcetera and even "meltdown" Phil Hellmuth in small doses; Devilfish from Europe; Gus Hansen; Daniel Negreanu is fun to watch; Tom Dwan has a good game and is a transition guy from new to more established. I probably respect Phil Ivey's playing style the most as the perfect blend of math and psychology with pure gamesmanship. He's not a bundle of laughs but he gets into those crazy prop bets though.


    Daniel's play can annoy me but his table banter makes him a fave anyhow. Guys like Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Antonio Esfandiari play solid mathematical games but their table style tends to be just low-key. Still I'd rather watch them play than 6-8 fresh internet hopefuls on a given show. Phil Laak & Jennifer Tilly at the same table were fun to watch several times.


    Without some player personality there's no good reason for me to watch.
