Posted on December 22, 2009 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Were coming near the end of the year and the various means of poker mediation have begun to publish their reviews for the year we are leaving behind.
The well-known columnist Gary Trask compiled a list of 10 most exciting poker players for 2009. Which of course is not directly related to their performance at the tables solely but overall to the outlook they have stricken to the media altogether?
- 10. Vanessa Rousso
A beautiful young woman who knows very well how to play poker: what more needs marketing? Rousso appeared the in summer cover of the Sports Illustrated magazine (and had a dedicated section dedicated to PokerStars), Rousso signed an agreement with Go Daddy, and has her own column in the Hustler magazine. Winning the High Roller event at the EPT Grand Final and ending second in the NBC National HU Championship, Rousseau is earning more than $ 1.3 million in tournament cashes in 2009.
- 9. Darwin Moon
“Too good to be proven true,” said Trask. The wood cutter from Maryland that almost makes the wonder and has never paid a hand in online poker in his life and the obscurity almost won the WSOP Main Event! He is the man behind WSOP slogan “Anyone can participate, anyone can win” is the absolute inspiration of a great portion of people.
- 8. Jeffrey Pollack
Popular Commissar of the WSOP surprised everyone when he announced that he was withdrawing from his position. The reasoning of the departure was set to be an accomplishment to achieve what he had set as target. Although this might seem reasonable enough, Harrah’s was strangely silent on the issue by failing even to thank Pollack for so many years of labor in the press release announcing his withdrawal!
- 7. Jeff Lisandro
A real year-on fire Lisantro who won the title of Player of the Year and received three bracelets at the WSOP in a spectacular crescendo of the famous player of this year. Lisantro may not be the most sexy man playing poker, but his exploits of the green felt surely have written history.
- 6. Phil Ivey
The best player in the world to come again in the WSOP Main Event final table constituting a united desire of the poker world to conquer.
- 5. Annie Duke
Quiet year for Annie at the tables, but managed to ‘steal’ the show on television show Apprentice by managing to revolutionize the interest of many viewers who previously knew nothing about poker players.
- 4. Tom durrrr Dwan
The busiest poker player online at his age. He has managed to develop to a star rapidly on TV tables and furthermore he has been recruited by Full Tilt Poker.
- 3. Mike Sexton
For many young simply the “elderly gentleman” who commented on the WPT “, but this particular individual enjoys the respect of all his colleagues and the media. Everyone knows that the vote of the Poker Hall of Fame and the election would be a formality. “The reputation and success have not changed at all,” said his brother Tom in the ceremony of introduction to the pantheon of poker heroes.
- 2. Joe Cada
The youngest Main Event winner seems to be the right man for the right job. He appeared in numerous talk shows and television programs, leaving great impression.
- 1. Isildur1
The mysterious man who appeared from nowhere and made the world of poker run a hectic pace with huge victories and defeats to follow each other. All this veil of mystery makes the exciting Isildur1. We have no idea who he is,” said Trask. Who is Isidur1 and who is Martonas? Most people seem to think that Swede Victor Blom is the most likely candidate to be Isildur1… but nobody can say for sure.
We would like to thank Gary Trask for an excellent résumé of excellent individuals.
