Here is a collection of some of my favourite poker quotes and moments from some of my favourite poker players of all time. People tend to think of Ivey and Dwan that they forget the classics like Chip Reese and Stu "The Kid" Ungar. Please comment if you like it! Thanks very much. The song is Rolling in The Deep - Adele.
Stu Ungar: I'll tell you my strategy right now. It's to have half the chips and go heads up with someone because I pretty much don't think anybody could beat me two-handed.
Daniel Negreanu: You know what I think he's got? Aces.
Scotty Ngyuen: You call and it's gonna be all over, baby.
Tom Dwan: (after bluffing, points to Eastgate) He had the best hand.
Phil Laak: Tom Dwan, you win the money. (folds)
Tom Dwan: Good news.
Lex Veldhauis: I thought you were just angry at Barry.
Phil Ivey: I am.
Commentator: (sees Lex grinning) Uh oh, he's smiling.

Commentator: Yes! Deuce! Stuey wins the tournament.
Commentator: And Chan has him! Johnny Chan the master.
Gabe Kaplan: Two of the five best poker players in the world going head to head, neither one of them has a hand right now.
Commentator: He makes the call with queen high! Unbelievable!
Phil Ivey: You have to know when to go in for the kill. I'm all in.
Mike Sexton: The loser goes to the ground, and the winner goes skyward! That's the way it should be.

Phil Hellmuth: I can dodge bullets, baby!
Announcer: Ace-9 high! Allan Cunningham, maybe with the play of the tournament thus far!
Stu Ungar: There's nobody who's ever beat me playing cards. The only person who's beat me is myself.
