A Couple of of Poker’s Charming Pros

No Joke, millions of players are trying to be the next "star" in poker, but here is a short list of 4 of the more famous "great pros" of poker. Even though "nice" is associated with their names when you are facing them it’s "no more Mr. Nice guy" until they have removed you out of the competition!

Daniel Negreanu

In 2004, his tournament winnings amounted to more than $4.4 million and he attained 2 immensely admired awards in the World Series of Poker Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Tournament Player of the Year. In Feb 2006 he was chosen Card Player’s Favourite Poker Player. He even still has the humility to speak to his admirers about how they might boost their own game.

Howard Lederer

Referred to as "The Professor" and brother of fellow poker professional Annie Duke. His achievements have lead to him making an instructional poker video called "Secrets of No Limit Hold’em" and co hosting a tournament poker show for Fox.

Scotty Nguyen

Scott is 1 of the busiest players in professional poker and between Two Thousand to 2004 he placed in the money in more than one hundred tournaments. He’s notorious for saying "yeah baby" during poker games and also coined the term "that’s poker baby" when alluding to a particularly bad loss. As of 2006, his career winnings are almost 6 million dollars.

Chris Ferguson

Chris has captured five World Series of Poker titles with two of his successes happening in Two Thousand and Three.
