Best Player in the World

Sorry if there is already a thread for this topic (im sure there is somewhere)

I was having a discussion with a friend about the best player in the world right now, he was saying that it was obviously Jason Mercier as he won the WSOP POTY but i disagreed.

Would love to know people's thoughts on who/why is among the best of the best right now

And as a side question, what about the greatest player ever? Has to be Negreanu based purely on total winnings right? (Same friend was claiming Negreanu was overrated )

How you made this thread without even mentioning Phil Ivey is mind blowing...

They haven't updated Hendon yet, but yesterday I played a 20 million buyin 3 handed sng and won 60 million so I am now the best player in the world based on total winnings.

Re: Best Player in the World

Your friend is correct. Jason Mercier is the best player in the world. Here are the next best players in the world, in descending order of greatness:

Mike Gorodinsky
George Danzer
Daniel Negreanu
Greg Merson
Ben Lamb
Frank Kassela
Jeff Lisandro
Erick Lindgren
Tom Schneider
Jeff Madsen
Allen Cunningham

Negreanu is so good he deserves to be on that list twice.

I mean I'd still say Crosby but McDavid is right there

Greatest ever is obviously Ogie Oglithorpe.
