Isaac westmenloAA Baron

Isaac Baron is widely recognized as one of the best players in tournament and cash games in online poker. In 2007, Isaac was named CardPlayer Online Player of the Year. In his poker career, Isaac Baron has earned more than $ 3,000,000 in prize money, captured 13 titles and has become one of the most well-known online poker players. The most prestigious of Isaac's wins came in the PokerStars Sunday Million, Full Tilt $ 750,000 Guarantee and PokerStars $ 200 Rebuy events. Although Baron has begun to focus more on cash games and live tournament action, he is still a threat to eliminate any tournament he participates in. A recent European Poker Tour Final Table appearance generated nearly $ 1,000,000 dollars for Isaac Baron and strengthens his place as one of the best online or live tournament poker players.

Alex AJKHoosier1 Kamberis

With over $ 3,300,000 in career poker winnings, AJKHoosier1 is undoubtedly on the shortlist of the best online poker players. Alex started playing poker in 2006, and after a solid start to his career in 2007, he exploded on the poker scene in 2008 with nearly $ 2.8 million in tournament winnings.

In 2008, AJKHoosier1 was CardPlayer Online Player of the Year and has already earned 122 cash and 9 titles in his short career. As with many of the dominant online poker players, Alex has begun to branch out into live poker tournaments and will certainly be a tough out in any live or online poker tournament he participates in.


Shaun Deeb is the current leader in the CardPlayer Online Player of the Year race and has been one of the best online poker players for the past few years.

In his poker career, Shaun Deeb has already amassed more than 2,000,000 in tournament winnings, 20 poker titles and an amazing 120 cash. Deeb is not only extremely talented, but is known as a poker grinder who reportedly plays 30 tournaments a day on average.


Annette Obrestad has already etched her name into poker history with a victory in the 2007 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event. The fact that Annette_15 is still not old enough to participate in live poker tournaments in the United States makes her $ 3,400,000 in career poker tournament winnings even more impressive. Annette Obrestad has also famously won a 180 person sit n go, while only topping her cards once. Among the other legendary tales about Annette_15 is that she has turned money won from freerolls into millions of dollars without ever making a deposit on an online poker site. Annette_15 has not repeated her previous tournament dominance in the last two years, but the legend will undoubtedly continue to grow.

Kevin BeL0WaB0Ve Saul

Kevin BeL0WaB0Ve Saul is known as one of the most dominant forces in early online poker tournaments. Kevin Saul parlayered his early online success to a payout of $ 1.3 million at the 2007 Bellagio Cup and a WPT title. BeL0WaB0Ve and a small group of tournament players started playing hyper-aggressively and dominated the online poker tournament circle a few years ago. The rest of the online tournament fields were forced to change their playing style and the end result is that tournament players use more 3 and 4bet bluffs and have loosened up their lifting and calling areas significantly. BeL0WaB0Ve helped move tournament poker to the next level and usually switch early or fight for the title. Kevin Saul's dominance of online poker may disappear, but speaks to being a strength on the live tournament poker scene.
