Can't believe Tony G isn't on this list. He's such a douche. Arrogant douchebaggery at its finest.

Tony Gs frickin awesome, sure he gets under players skin and does it well, but he's hillarious. He also handles bad beats much better than Douchemuth.

My top 10

1. RagingBull
2. Phil Ivey
4. Chris Ferguson (never stops needling other players after winning a pot)
11. Allen Cunningham (never shuts up, super arrogant)

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

This list is funny because if I were a program director and wanted to get the most action/ratings I would actually put most of this list on tv.

In a 9 handed cash game I would want

1. Negreanu
2. Brunson
3. Dwan
4. Ivey
5. Elezra
6. The Magician
7. Laak
8. Hellmuth
9. Farha

It may get annoying to some but TV is about ratings and the only thing wrong with this lineup is there may be too many personalities at the table. The only thing more annoying about poker on tv other than a table with no talk/personality, is a table talking about prop bets all the time without knowing who has what prop bets.

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Why is Patrik Antonius there??

seriously OP? you think someone who plays a solid game of poker ON televised poker, whilst not saying anything rude or annoying is worthy of being #6 of a top 10 annoying tv poker players list? I bet you think people in wheelchairs are annoying for not being able to walk too. Dickhead.

op had some momentum going with Shannon, Brunson, and maybe even Negreanu but some of the names there just seem to be there for the sake of filling a top 10 list..horrible list and 4/10 OP sorry you ruined it, you missed out on some really annoying tv poker guests too

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

My favourite table would look like:
- Sam Farha
- Eli Elezra
- Tony G.
- Phil Helmuth
- Tom Dwan
- Doyle Brunson or Johnny Chan or another "oldschool" player
- Huck Seed
- Jennifer Harman
- rich business man no. 1
- rich business man no. 2

My least favourite table would look like:
- Phil Laak (annoying ultra nit)
- Antonio Esfandiari (magician without any magic)
- Greg Raymer (a living fossil)
- Andrew Black (don't meed monks at the poker table)
- Patrik Antonius (definitely superboring)
- Jennifer Tilly (clueless b....)
- Jason Mercier (his permanent 3betting from the button does not create any action)
- Annette Obrestad (sunglasses should be forbidden and nail varnish removers should be compulsory)
- Howard Lederer (please no inforaising in 2011)
- a random young "pro" who talks about odds and outs all the time and who thinks he is the best poker player ever

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

I just have to say wow to this OP...most of the players he's pointed out are classy, entertaining, and most likely very good people.

There are only a few people I dislike watching at all. I don't care for Matusow. I'm not a big fan of Helpi. My least favorite player is probably Tony G. Even so, I would not make a thread just to bash these people for little or no reason (though some bashing of G would be very justified).

Waste of a thread...

Re: Top Ten Most Annoying TV Poker Players

Take into consideration that OP thinks PH "is a great player." What is annoying to him (great poker play, focus, humility, etc.) might be entertaining to others.
