1. Hellmuth2. Ivey3. Daniel4. Chan5. GrinderHellmuth definitly doesnt get the respect on this forum.For those who say Harrington I think you are very wrong. I dont think Dan would even put himslef in the top 15 let alone the top 5.

I think every all-time list should have Doyle Brunson on it and every current list should have Phil Ivey and John Juanda on it.

I would love to hear from Daniel on this one. Here's my now list:1) Allen Cunningham (this one is a no-brainer, just ask DN)2) Daniel Negreanu3) Phil Ivey4) John Juanda5) Sammy FarhaThe best player ever is without a doubt Stu Ungar.

Brunson is still great, but his age and fatigue are starting to become factors. I'd sooner put Mizrachi in the top 5 today than I would Brunson.Whoever put Sammy Farha in there must be mentally retarded. Farha is one of the best PLO CASH GAME players. He's capable at the other games, but at the highest levels, doesn't regularly succeed there. He is definitely not one of the best 5, 25 or maybe even 50 top tournament professionals in the game today.

Sammy is a great player. He's a decent tournament player. When you're talking about top tournament players, unless it's Omaha, his name will never come up.A "GREAT" tournament player will have more than 10 major tourney cashes. That's all Sammy has.http://www.cardplaye.../Sam_Farha/5277Compare that to Mizrachi who already has 18 cashes this year alone.Sammy is not a tournament professional. It's as simple as that.

you don't even have david brenyamine in there? in my eyes he is one of the best online players, the number of times i have seen him with 150k+ on 40k buy in tables is amazing.
