4 of Poker’s Charming Pros

No Joke, millions and millions of players are trying to be the next "star" in poker, but here is a short rundown on four of the more well known "nice players" of the game. Despite the fact that "nice" is associated with their names when you are at a poker table it’s "no more Mr. Nice guy" until they have put you out of the competition!

Daniel Negreanu

In Two Thousand and Four, his competition payouts added up to more than four and a half million dollars and he attained 2 highly respected awards in the World Series of Poker Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Tournament Player of the Year. In February Two Thousand and Six he was chosen Card Player’s Favourite Poker Player. Daniel still has the humility to speak with his admirers about how they could improve their own game.

Howard Lederer

Known as "The Professor" and brother of fellow poker pro Annie Duke. His accomplishments have allowed him to make an instructional video named "Secrets of No Limit Hold’em" and co hosting a tournament poker show for Fox TV. As of 2005, his complete life time earnings surpass 2.7 million dollars.

Scotty Nguyen

Scott is one of the most active players in poker and from 2000 and 2004 he ranked in the money in more than 100 events. He is noted for saying "yeah baby" during poker games and also coined the term "that’s poker baby" when alluding to a particularly bad beat. As of Two Thousand and Six, his career earnings are almost $6 million.

Chris Ferguson

Chris has earned five WSOP titles with 2 of his wins happening in 2003. Has the alias "Jesus" as a result of his trademark long hair and beard, that, and along with his ability to throw cards quick enough to slice through pickles and bananas. As of 2005 his total live poker tournament winnings exceeded five million dollars.
