i'm a bit surprised that there is no room for either Johnny Chan who nearly won 3 in a row main events or the player that beat him Phil Helmuth,they have got to be 2 of the greatesst ever.

Agreed.I mean these best of lists are usually subjection anyway but Chan and Hellmuth have to be on there as well. Those old pros I respect because they established the game but I can't relate to them really in terms of who they are and from having 'grown up with them'.

Negreanu has to be another contender - see what he deos in the next 5 years or so, but still a class act.

There's a few others but a lot of the modern players have done very well, but not gone on to be exceptional. Esfandiari is class BUT is he a poker legend? From the one drop alone I guess. Same for Dwan - cash game amazing, tournaments not so much.

aye noonlion,Daniel Negreanu is one of my favourite players too and i think he is quite funny as well,what about that young english guy Sam Trickett ? he looks like he could turn out to be a very good player also.

Threads like this have been posted over the years and the conclusion in many cases was that it was hard to make a top if you do not have some clear criteria ti judge.

But all player that you mentioned i think deserve a place in the poker halll of fame, i think it's a much better concept than a top.
