Hey guys, I was scrolling through Negreanu's FCP forum a while back and he started a thread himself in which he wanted to see who the public thought was the better poker player between Chip Reese and Phil Ivey (I guess since they're most often the two most talked about as being the best). His caveat was that nobody that would be posting would actually have any idea since probably no one there had ever actually played with them.
He didn't give his opinion, but I would be curious to know what you fellas think...maybe you've played with one or both in some type of event....?
Or just some insight as to what the pros in the poker world say the answer is when the question is brought up.
From a fan/outside point of view, it would seem that Reese is almost always considered the best cash game player....but I don't know if that's changed recently...maybe Ivey is as good as him at cash and mixed games...? But Ivey certainly seems to have better tournament skills, and I think an "all around best player" conversation has to include tournament skills too.
But maybe Reese's side game skills are so good that it overrides the tournament aspect..?
Not a technical question, but more of a special interest question, I guess.
