Literally millions and millions of individuals strive to be the next "star" in poker, but here is a short rundown on four of the more noteworthy "great pros" of poker. Granted "nice" is connected with their names when you are at a poker table it is "no more Mr. Nice guy" up until they have put you out of the competition!

Daniel Negreanu

In Two Thousand and Four, his tournament winnings added up to in excess of 4.4 million dollars and he captured two immensely admired awards in the WSOP Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Competition Player of the Year. In February 2006 he was named Card Player’s Preferred Poker Player. Daniel even still has the decency to talk with his admirers about how they will be able to boost their own game.

Howard Lederer

Referred to as "The Professor" and brother of fellow poker professional Annie Duke. His accomplishments have allowed him to make an instructional video called "Secrets of No Limit Hold’em" and also hosting a tournament poker show for Fox TV. As of Two Thousand and Five, his complete life time winnings surpass 2.7 million dollars.

Scotty Nguyen

Scott is 1 of the most active players in poker and between 2000 and Two Thousand and Four he finished in the money in excess of 100 tournaments. He is notorious for saying "yeah baby" during poker matches and also credited with the phrase "that’s poker baby" when alluding to a particularly bad loss. As of 2006, his life time winnings are just about 6 million dollars.

Chris Ferguson

Chris has won 5 WSOP titles with 2 of his wins happening in Two Thousand and Three.
