No Limit Holdem (in Off-topic)

There was talk in another thread about a possible poker tournament for CB prizes and it got me thinking of a few questions I'd like to pose to all you poker fans out in CB land, so I figured I didn't want to hijack a thread so I'd make my own.

I guess... Just as a start, answer these questions for me, if you have the time...
Leave the ones you can't answer blank.

1. Who is your favorite poker personality (Player or otherwise)?
2. Which poker sites do you play on? (Screen names if you'd like!)
3. Whats the most influential poker book you've read?

My answers are:

1. Daniel Negraneau is my favorite player, but I like to watch Phil Hellmuth explode most of all.
2. Pacific Poker and PokerStars: "JimmyBrit"... also Full Tilt and PokerRoom from time to time...
3. "Harrington on Hold 'em: Expert Strategy for No-Limit Tournaments" by Dan Harrington is a great No-Limit book but I also read a few David Sklansky books on general poker knowledge that were very good...

1. Gus Hansen the man is unreadable and plays almost any hand and wins

2. Absolute Poker "Edyit"

3. A book to play poker????

1. Phil Ivey is the best player but Phil hellmuth is funny to watch
2. Royal Vegas
3. a book called experience.

1. Mike Matusow, just for the fact that its very entertaining to watch him. : ) I also like Farha. along with Gus, he's very hard to read.

2. Partypoker, pokerroom

3. Harrington on hold 'em volume 1 (of course)

i usually just play for fake money, but this summer im going to start playing online for real $$ with my friend. : )

Just a side note, to those of you who have never read a poker book. "The Mad Genius of Poker" Mike Caro wrote a book (along with others) called "Caro's Fundamental Secrets of Winning Poker"... a very good book to start with, as it deals with basic fundamentals of poker. It's written in a very concise and fun format that I breezed through. It's not a big book, isn't full of math, and it's pretty inexpensive.

I recommend starting with this book.

i actually heard of that book and was told that that book was really good especially for amateurs and beginners

1.Gus Hansen (Edyit already said why)
3.Never read a book about poker,i dont need,its natural to me.My only advise:You can only be great at poker if you play against great poker players.Thats mean its important to adapt your play depending of your table partners.

Anyone got a favorite casino? I've really only gone to Foxwoods, but since it has the largest poker room on the planet, it's my favorite. I play Roulette, Poker, and a little Horse Racing when I go.
