No Joke, countless of people strive to be the next "mega star" in poker, but here is a short list of 4 of the more noteworthy "charming guys" of the game. Even though "nice" is associated with their names when you are at a poker table it is "no more Mr. Nice guy" until they have put you out of the competition!
In Two Thousand and Four, his tourney earnings added up to in excess of 4.4 million dollars and he captured two immensely respected awards in the WSOP Player of the Year and Cardplayer Magazine’s Competition Player of the Year. In February Two Thousand and Six he was chosen Card Player’s Favourite Poker Player. He still has the humility to speak with his fans about how they could advance their own game.

As of Two Thousand and Six, his life time winnings are almost $6 million.

Has the nickname "Jesus" due to his trademark long hair and beard, and is able to throw cards quick enough to slice through bananas and pickles.
