A Couple of of Poker’s Nice Pros

Beyond a doubt countless of players are trying to be the next "mega star" in poker, but here is a short rundown on four of the more well known "great pros" of poker. Even though "nice" is connected with their names when you are facing them it is "no more Mr. Nice guy" until they have removed you out of the competition!

Daniel Negreanu

In Two Thousand and Four, his tourney winnings amounted to more than 4.4 million dollars and he attained two immensely respected 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 named Card Player's Preferred Poker Player. He still has the decency to talk with his admirers about how they can advance their own game.

Howard Lederer

Referred to as "The Professor" and sibling of fellow poker professional Annie Duke. His accomplishments have lead to him making an educational poker video called "Secrets of No Limit Hold'em" and co hosting a tournament poker show for Fox TV. As of 2005, his total life time winnings surpass $2.7 million.

Scotty Nguyen

Scott is one of the most active players in poker and from 2000 and 2004 he placed in the money in well over 100 competitions. He is noted for saying "yeah baby" during poker games and also credited with the term "that's poker baby" when alluding to a exceptionally bad loss. As of Two Thousand and Six, his career winnings are almost $6 million.

Chris Ferguson

Chris has captured five World Series of Poker titles with two of his successes happening in Two Thousand and Three. Has the nickname "Jesus" due to his characteristic long hair and beard, that, and along with his ability to toss cards quick enough to cut through bananas and pickles. As of Two Thousand and Five his total poker tourney earnings exceeded five million dollars.
