Randy Lew or as some know him as nanonoko is well on his way.Very dangerous player, flat out can play.He'sgot 5 million hands played with 2 million in earnings.He is just stepping up to higher stakes like $25/$50 blinds.He crushed lowerstakes @1/2 3/6 5/10.

Only time will tell but I think he is on his way.

My vote is for Randy Lew for online poker. Live I really don't know. Makes me laugh someone mentioned Helmuth. He is a very good tournament player, but not so much at the cash games. Randy on the other hand is transitioning over to live tournament play really well. He just took down a 3mil+ first place

Again depends on definition of how you define best, Helmuth is on my list, he has done a good job building his personal brand, whatever you think of his cash game. Also he is on my list for entertainment value too.

I hear people say Ivey yet is he a good tourney player?

I do enjoy watching Gus Hanson play as well as Tom Dwan

Helmuth and Laak are very good players, for sure, but if you want the best to watch when they tilt.... they're 1-2 in my book.

Haha yeah Helmuth is awesome to watch. My favorite Helmuth moments are on Pokerstar's The Big Game. Like I said before, I don't think his cash game is anything special so he is more frustated than normal.

I forgot about Daniel Negraneu (hope I spelled that right?). He is really great tourny and cash player. He has also done a great job of building his personal brand like Grade B brought up about Helmuth.

Depends of it's online, live cash games or live tournies.

Online: I'd have to go with Nanonoko, too.
Live cash: not really qualified to comment
Live Tourny: His form may of dipped in recent years and he maybe an a***, but it's hard to argue with Phil Hellmuth's 12 WSOP titles.

You've been missing some crucial Poker After Dark episodes.

Curious how nobody has mentioned Doyle.

He's super boring, but Eric Seidel has to be somewhere on the list. He has 8 bracelets and close to17 million in tournament winnings. Pretty good if you'd ask me.
