Though it is matter of personal perspective and opinion, some of the best USA poker players are Chip Reese, Brunson, Hellmuth and Chan. Chip Reese should be the favorite USA poker player since he won three WSOP tournaments before expiring in 2007 and also won the prestigious Buy-in Horse tournament, that offers $50,000, and is a very hard one to win since it includes various poker games such as Razz, Omaha, Seven-card Stud Hi Low and Seven-card Stud.
