Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Still can't believe you put Doyle, Elezra, and Greenstein on the list. Helmuth, Men the Bastard I mean Master, Devilfish surely belong.
That Helmuth Shtick isn't just an act, sure he gets all hyperventilated when the cameras are on but he's been a douchebag far too long for it to all be "for show".
Doyle may be annoying to some, but look at all the crap he's seeing in these games lately such as grandstanding, welders' glasses, hoodies clamped up, possies (sp.), and endless table banter~the guy just wants to get to the next hand

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

I really thought this was a level post. Barry G is the man. The guy triggered the lol donkaments charity drive to Children Inc. Raised a whole lot of money for them.

I do not think you can put Doyle there either. If anything, blame the people around him for that applauding ****. It's way over the top.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

List is worthless without Humberto 'da chark' Brenes, Brad Garett - or any celebrity for that matter (other than Shannon Elizabeth..) , David Grey, Annie Duke, Men 'the Master', Howard Lederer (is there anything more annoying in the world than him talking about hip hop like he's an expert?), Phil Gordon etc. Op's list is terrible, Scotty and Simon are the only two I somewhat agree with.

He even had the courtesy to ask Dwan if it would be alright to make the comment after the suckout... Of course they don't show that on tv, but that's the reason why the whole comment seemed staged and cringeworthy

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

I have to disagree with #7 - Daniel and #2 - Eli. They are two of my favorite players on HSP. I doubt I would watch the show without them. I also like Dwan a lot.

I think OP has no logic because he dislikes some players who are super quiet (agreed) but then dislikes others who talk a lot. It's TV, it is more fun if they are talking and being lively.

My favorite episodes of HSP are when players play tons of hands and talk a lot and this is usually Eli, Daniel, and Dwan!

If they didn't show that on tv, how do you know this, hellrabbit?

Are you Barry Greenstein?

I think he should forfeit $1,000 to you then. That or his username be changed to RagingPussy.

2. Annie Duke~Wouldn't rank her 2nd, but a top tenner for sure
3. Matusow~Belongs somewhere on this list, especially lately now that he's become a super-nit
4. Eli Elezra~No place for Eli on this list, he comes to gamble, handles bad beats w/ class, and continually plays in the biggest live games in Vegas
5. Antonio~Deserves to be on the list when Laak is also at the table, otherwise both players are pretty decent & tolerable
6. Scotty~Should be higher up on the list when drunk, 6th place is about right when he's sober
7. Negreanu~Not sure about Daniel, talks more than he should I suppose, but does keep the table upbeat & more entertaining than tables without him usually. Also a big plus for telling Helmuth that he really isn't a cash game player (at least at these stakes against these players). Not many players (other than Viffer) tell Helmuth the hard truths about his behavior & game. He also seems pretty honest about assesing his own game
8. Tony G~Pretty fair choice and rank w/ Tony here
9. Laak~See #5 above
10. TILLY~Don't really see her much on TV, not enough to annoy me anyhow.
*Men the Master, and Devilfish definately belong on the list, and Chris Ferguson (not the person, but his horrifically slow & deliberate play is definately annoying enough to make the list IMO)

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Hahaha "Isreali Fonzi from Happy Days" lol

How are Annie Duke and Humberto Brenes not on this list?

I can see where some would want Hellmuth on this list, but imo he's pure entertainment.
You cant take a guy with that size of an ego too seriously, just laugh at him and enjoy the show.....

Brenes on the other hand...*****y a douche would pull some of the stuff he's pulled on National TV just google his match on NBC HUPC with Huck Seed god what an idiot
