Your at the WSOP and......
 
You're holding the chips lead at the start of the final table. Who do you not want to see sitting at the final table with you?

Gus Hanson

Howard Lederer

waldo 08-05-04 12:47 AM

lederer or ivey

wysimdnwyg 08-31-04 09:31 AM

Lederer
 
While Hanson and Negraneu would scare me (because of their ability to play any hand), Lederer is probably the best tactical player today. You HAVE to beat the odds to oust him.

Chad 10-15-04 01:01 PM

I would say people like Hanson, Ivey, Men the Master or Scotty Nguyen or any real aggressive player for that matter. I would definitely tighten my game up. That strategy may not win, but it would get me further into the money.

flash 10-17-04 08:53 PM

hanson due to he will play any 2 cards

pjpocket 10-20-04 11:34 AM

I'd have to say phil ivey. If he's on the final table then he must be having a good tournament and phil ivey on a streak is lethal.

Either way, whoever is on the table i'd be dumbstruck simply being there, let alone in the company of names such as ivey, negreanu, scotty nguyen and the like...

Aburame Shino 11-03-04 11:39 AM

Howard Lederer.

DerekBarrett 11-25-04 01:48 AM

Phil Ivey

Alaskan 12-03-04 06:22 PM

...in addition to the names suggested John Juanda and Ted Forrest would not be a welcome sight.

Alaskan 12-03-04 06:25 PM

Oh yeah, Hoyt Corkins would be a problem too.

Chad 12-08-04 09:11 AM

Evelyn Ng
 
She's too hot. I would find it hard to pay attention to the game. If she was sitting on the other side of the table, the table would tilt towards her, taking my chips to her...if you know what I mean.

ghettoT 12-08-04 02:19 PM

Hellmuth - 9 time winner, plays head games, and can even get under lederer's skin - that is unheard of.

Chad 12-08-04 02:58 PM

Did you see Annie Duke totally play Phil Hellmuth? It was fantastic! She destroyed him!

If I made to that point I could care less who I was heads up against...especially having the chip lead...I would not make the mistake of thinking they are poker gods that cannot be beat...I would play them like anyone else...but probably have more fun doing so...I would acually love playing one of the big named poker stars heads up...If you won you would be the next big thing...And also be able to say you beat so and so heads up for a major tourny win

where's Marcel?

Unregistered 04-15-05 04:38 PM

bbh- where's Marcel?

I played in the International Poker Federation tournament in St. Maarten at the Casino Royale. I was at the same table as him for about an hour. He's kinda of a ass when there are no camera's around. He didn't say much and just looked grumpy. I was across the table from him. Someone at the table tried to make small talk and he blew them off. Most of the time he had this skank blonde giving him a shoulder rub. He definitely seemed full of himself, but not in a quirky, funny way... more like in an asshole way. I don't know... maybe that was just the way he wanted his image to be for this tournament. He did have a mountain of chips though, so props to his poker skills. We never played in a hand together, so I don't have a "he beat me/I beat him story"... oh well...

Unregistered 08-24-05 05:36 PM

bring'em all on.......cuz its about playing your game whether you're playing against hanson doyle chumps it don't matter as long as you play you're cards right

Unregistered 10-17-05 08:43 PM

Hoyt and Gus, you got to have your sht together or your out with One or Two mistakes.

AceofSpader 12-21-06 04:18 AM

Wouldnt matter to me, Id still own them! =P

Mustang 05-07-07 02:18 AM

I wouldn't want to see any of these guys:

Ivey
Hansen
Ferguson
Hellmuth

Most of these guys play super loose and are unpredictable, and Ferguson is quite lucky sometimes and they have near perfect reads. How could I beat a player that consistently makes the correct decision on every play by play (correct decision on pre-flop, correct read on me, correct decision on flop, on turn, on river, so on..).

Mustang 05-08-07 03:44 AM

I also wouldn't want to see Negreanu. An example, at 2006 wsop tournament of champions, 4 players left, negreanu playing against sexton:

Negreanu has Q-2

Sexton has K-K

Table 5-7-6-2-5

Negreanu checks on the river, Sexton bets $50,000, Negreanu comments "might have like kings.., hmm 2 kings? ......". Then he pays the 50k and says "I just wanna see him". That's just insane. How could you play against a player like that, or other people like Ivey, Hellmuth or Lederer who just *know* what you have. LOL

HPG ADMIN 05-08-07 04:37 AM

yeah cuz even if you win the hand like that you feel like a loser for having your hand read

drklitschko 09-24-09 06:24 PM
