Second, I actually missed some of these TonyG clips, because I do not watch every single televised poker broadcast. Unlike you, who sits in front of the tv with a bowl of doritos and Captain Crunch cereal for 8 hours in a row, I am more selective about the shows I watch.

I stopped watching the World Poker Tour years ago,.. I only watch certain shows. Im selective.

Lets play headsup for $1000, you name the site. Im sick of your insults.
then dont make a list.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

You mention Phil Laak in your description of the magician but do not list him in your top 10? The guy is a carbon copy of his best friend A.E.. I would find anyone that does pushups and situps near the table incredibly irritating and annoying.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Need to edit my post #97, can't believe I left Layne Flack off the list, especially after his completely douchbag-worthy display of affection towards Scotty Nguyens' drunken tirade AKA the WSOP HORSE Championship. It was awesome when Eric Lingren totally diss'd "back-2-back Flack" when he refused his high five

I cannot stand Phil Hellmuth. He always has to complain or whine when he gets beat. He just needs to grow up.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Lists like these are inherently subjective. Some people can find players annoying because they talk too much, or too little, because they're too splashy or too nitty, too confrontational or not confrontational enough, too self-promoting or too reserved. Plus, there's always editing involved, so what we're seeing may not be an accurate representation of what a player is really like.

For me personally, the one thing that bugs me most when watching poker on TV is when they get top notch players (Ivey, Antonius, Durrr, for example) who I'd really like to see play a cash game, but who just use it as an exercise to indulge in prop bets that make it so the cash game stakes - and thus the cash game itself - are meaningless. As a result, we see poker action that is an afterthought. Don't get me wrong - if I had the talent and money these guys do, I'd probably find it a struggle to otherwise get excited by cash game stakes like on PAD, but they need to think of the viewer, which is why, IMO, HSP gets it right. End of rant.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Yeah, there were some strange inclusions and omissions in the list but I thought the comments were funny. And, while it's not Doyle's fault, I agree about all the ass-kissing he gets at the WSOP. A friend of mine told me that once he was playing in the ME, Doyle walked in and some fat guy stood up and went "DOYLE BRUNSON ! YEAH !!" clapping and staring at everyone who didn't stand up and clap like they were Communists. GTFO.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

I think most of the 'annoying' poker players make it more fun to watch. Hellmuth, Matusow etc. but then there's people like Laak who are just plain annoying.

He made my list, I mean a 15 second tank to check your big blind
Even more annoying was seeing Jerry Yang adopt this methodical approach during this years National HU on NBC.
Even w/ fast forwarding my DVR it still seemed like an eternity (and Jerry, you're NO Chris Ferguson).

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

David Grey anyone?

seriously there is a week of PAD where a few times he says things so awkward or out of nowhere that everyone at the table just pretends they didnt hear him. Somehow he managed to be the most annoying player at a table where Matusow, Belande, and Annie Duke are there...

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Your ranking is complete crap.

Just to point out one thing. Barry asked Dwan (off camera) if it was ok to say that (it was for charitiy after all!), and Dwan was cool with it. Plus everybody knew it was a joke and for a good cause. So no big deal.

Then Doyle, Antonio, Patrik ... they can be anywhere. But certainly not on a "most annoying ever poker players" list.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

I would like to issue a formal apology to Barry Greenstein for placing him on this list. If he reads this forum, hey man, Im sorry!!! I took that scene from High Stakes Poker out of context. You are a great human being!!!


But everyone else on the list is a douche

NO seriously, I think the list just represents my personal tastes...

I enjoy watching the antics of Laak, TonyG, Hellmuth, Matusow... therefore, they don't annoy me.

But someone like Elezra who is inherently not annoying makes the list, because he gets too much tv time and its enough already.. he becomes annoying through over-exposure..

I would like to add many other people to my list, shall I post a new list soon?

No, since you botched the first list so badly you shouldn't get a second chance

Leaving out Helmuth but including Doyle is pretty much enough said IMO. I understand your Doyle reasoning, but it's not correct to include him on this list, it's not his fault he gets all that recognition, he's not asking for it~He just wants to play cards.

But I did love your "baby" thing w/ Scotty

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Lol more like top ten most enjoyable TV poker players.

1. Esfandiary is great, funny guy and good player
2. Elezra is pretty good, not super but certainly not bad
3. Greenstein is legend obv
4. Nguyen is pretty funny
5. Moneymaker meh sort of lame but no reason to be on this list
6. Patrik is one of the best players out there and a joy to watch, very funny guy as well
7. Negreanu well ok I'll give you that one, a bit obnoxious but certainly not one of the worst
8. Brunson, if any Brunson should be on this list it's his idiot son
9. Shannon, you base this on one silly superstition? Really?
10. Sam Simon, apparently if you make a funny show you have to be a comedian all the time? Lol get over yourselve.

Some people I would've put on there: Hellmuth(duh), Devilfish, Fullflush, Lederer and Todd Brunson.
