Yeah I"d have to beat him senseless with a beer bottle or something. That and Durrr's gay monotone voice. Chris Ferguson has to be the slowest person on earth when he goes into that face in hands bull****. That would drive me up the wall too

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Really, I enjoy watching all of it, but if I had to name villains:
-Phil Hellmuth obviously, although he does make for excellent TV
-Jerry Yang puts me on epic life tilt, how has no one mentioned him yet?
-Kenny Tran is obv a great player but his voice annoys me
-All the noisy gimmick people at the WSOP
-Jamie Gold would tilt me if I were playing with him, but he's entertaining on TV

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

mike matusow you have to love him! Hes so funny and makes any TV poker show 100% better.

Daniel Negreanu is a bit up himself but with good reason I still think he is an amazing poker player with awesome hand reading skills. Also he seems like he's not a complete dick like I'v heard the rest of the TV poker community is. (eg everyone mentioned in this thread )

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Antonius - has no personality. Don't have any feeling either way.

Flack - I think he's funny as hell. "Ask me what I got." "Whadya got?" "You beat."

Negranieu - entertaining anyhow.

Matusow - entertaining and if you listen he is somewhat instructive.

Laak - entertaining in a stupid way.

K Tran - can be funny if you wind him up right.

Helmuth - love to hate him. I'd like to be at a tourney table with him. Seeing who tilts who first would be worth the price.

Gold, Yang - grease fires have a purpose.

Perry Friedman - actually funnier than the hand puppet.

Phil Gordon - also a funny guy but tries too hard.

I love watching Gus because he's so self-deprecating, and hilarious. You can tell all the pros love to play with him, and not just because he's such a donor. The best is when you get Gus and Daniel at the same table.

"They come all the way from Canada to lay down straights..."
"There's an old saying in poker.... **** you."

Good stuff.

Someone I've really never known what to make of is Erick Lindgren. I don't even know if I like him or not.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Cmon, Eli rocks da table every time.

A person who really puts me on life tilt, ist - after seeing her again on the WSOP Pot Limit Holdem final table - Kathy Liebert, what a dumb, not the least funny *****. I hit the roof every time she opens her mouth.


Btw. Yang is fun! "Raise ...... *uuuuuuuuh* ...... 1.5 MILLION!"

Loool.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Negreanu is my favorite since he is the best player to really offer insight as to what he's thinking. Durrr's voice and attitude annoys the hell out of me. He will forever look like the 16 year old kid who spends all of his time indoors.

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

Pros I watch whenever I can
Negeanu - Except when Matusow or Hellmuth is on. Then he just gets annoying.

Phil Laak - Cause I think he's funny

Ted Forrest - Cause he plays so smart, yet has more gamble than any other pro

Tony G
- I like to watch him play mind games with players that should know better

Pros I avoid watching

Durrr - Brand new to the list. What a complete tool.

Hellmuth - Always talking, but never saying anything

Mausow - I come and go with Mike, but the problem is he is on with Negreanu and Hellmuth too much, which is when he really sucks to watch

Devilfish - He used to be one I like to watch, but he has just become an ass

Re: Favorite and least favorite tv "pros".

the good:
doyle
negreanu
antonius
esfandiari
barry g
matusow
and yes, i actually like watching jamie gold. he can talk anybody into doing whatever he wants them to do, and i find this amusing to watch, especially given that everybody else at the table usually would like to kill him.
phil galfond

the bad:
durrr (the voice, the banter, the way he takes a million years to dangle chips over the pot before dropping them; otherwise i love the way he plays)
gavin smith (needs to stfu)
hellmuth (im ready to stop seeing this clown; he plays soo horribly on tv)
rousso (take the hat off and stfu)
chris ferguson (i have the utmost respect for his game but i dont need to sit and watch him nit it up for entertainment)
laak (this is a close one, but he's kinda starting to tilt me with his antics. too much clowning all the time)
