No Joke, countless of players want to be the next "big thing" in poker, but here is a short list of four of the more famous "charming guys" of poker. Even though "nice" is associated with their names when you are facing them it is "no more Mr. Nice guy" until they have removed you out of the game!

Daniel Negreanu

In 2004, his tourney payouts added up to more than four and a half million dollars and he won 2 highly respected awards in the World Series of Poker Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Tournament Player of the Year. In February 2006 he was appointed Card Player’s Favourite Poker Player. Daniel even still has the humility to speak to his admirers about how they will be able to improve their own game.

Howard Lederer

Called "The Professor" and brother of fellow poker pro Annie Duke. His achievements have lead to him making an educational poker video called "Secrets of No Limit Hold’em" and also holding a tournament poker show for Fox TV. As of 2005, his total life earnings surpass $2.7 million.

Scotty Nguyen

Scotty is one of the busiest players in professional poker and between Two Thousand to Two Thousand and Four he placed in the money in more than one hundred tournaments. He is notorious for saying "yeah baby" throughout poker matches and also coined the phrase "that’s poker baby" when alluding to a particularly bad defeat. As of 2006, his career winnings are just about six million dollars.

Chris Ferguson

Chris has won 5 World Series of Poker titles with two of his wins coming in 2003. Chris has the nickname "Jesus" because of his characteristic long hair and beard, along with his ability to throw playing cards fast enough to slice through bananas and pickles. As of Two Thousand and Five his total poker tournament winnings exceeded $5 million.
