Daniel Negreanu - Famous for his ability to read opponents, his strategic thinking is top-notch.

I agree with your list. Add Phil Ivey. That guy is just totally chill no matter what.

I’ll have to come back to list others. I definitely have more, just blank in my mind at the moment.


Honestly, I could extend the list further, but I’ve left space for you . :sunglasses:
Of course, Phil Ivey’s combination of natural talent, extensive experience, strategic versatility, and psychological insight make him a formidable force in the Poker world.
