Hey, I'm gonna create a sig with poker players on it but I'm not sure who to choose. It's among the list below. They're all so good that it's hard to choose. I figured I would try to get everyone else's opinions first.

Phil Ivey
Dan Negraneau
Howard Lederer
Chris Ferguson
Dan Harrington
Chip Reese
Doyle Brunsen
Bary Greenstein
Gus Hansen
Eric Seidel
Johnnie Chan

1. if its a poker sig, you have to put Doyle on it or it just don't count.

2. Johnny Chan the master ("I can't remember john!")

3. How can this list not include Hellmouth (i know i spelled it wrong)

I'm with Bootha, Brunson's an icon.

Hellmuth is definitely one of my favorites. I love to see him lose. }:-)

I love how these guys become celebrities by playing cards. :-b

These guys sit at a table all day and play cards! Cards! They're not even driving cars like those NASCAR boys. They get on television, become celebrities, endorse products and make commercials and they only play cards. They're not even interesting people (except for the Canadian Negraneau) - that Monyemaker guy that is on commercials all the time is a boring slob. Gotta love it - only in America :-D

He plays too many garbage hands... just reraise him and you'll know where you stand against him.

You gotta go with Doyle, Chan, and Ivey

Stu Ungar is the greatest poker player of all time, although hes dead now. After that, it would have to be Doyle and Chan followed by Ivey, Helmuth, and Lederer.
