4 of Poker’s Charming Players

Beyond a doubt millions of players are trying to be the next "mega star" in poker, but here is a short list of 4 of the more well known "nice guys" of the game. Even though "nice" is associated with their names when you are playing them it is "no more Mr. Nice guy" until they have removed you out of the competition!

Daniel Negreanu

In 2004, his competition payouts added up to more than 4.4 million dollars and he won 2 immensely respected awards in the World Series of Poker Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Tourney Player of the Year. In Feb 2006 he was appointed Card Player’s Favourite Poker Player. Daniel even still has the humility to speak to his fans about how they could boost their own game.

Howard Lederer

Referred to as "The Professor" and sibling of fellow poker pro Annie Duke. His accomplishments have lead to him making an instructional poker video named "Secrets of No Limit Hold’em" and also holding a tournament poker show for Fox. As of 2005, his total life time earnings exceed $2.7 million.

Scotty Nguyen

Scotty is 1 of the most active players in professional poker and between Two Thousand and Two Thousand and Four he placed in the money in more than 100 tournaments. He’s notorious for saying "yeah baby" throughout poker matches and also credited with the phrase "that’s poker baby" when referring to a exceptionally bad defeat. As of Two Thousand and Six, his life time earnings are just about 6 million dollars.

Chris Ferguson

Chris has earned five WSOP titles with 2 of his successes coming in Two Thousand and Three. Has the alias "Jesus" due to his characteristic long hair and beard, along with his ability to throw cards quick enough to cut through pickles and bananas.
