If looks mattered at all in the poker world, and there was a list of the game’s top heartthrobs, you bet your bottom dollar Doyle Brunson would be at the top of that list. All kidding aside, I recently saw a list of poker’s most attractive men, with Mike McDonald coming out as the dreamiest of the bunch.
With his high cheek bones and suave hair, it’s easy to see why MacauBillionairePoker has deemed McDonald as poker’s “Mr. Dreamy.” Of course, being named Mr. Dreamy isn’t the only title McDonald has. He’s also known for being the youngest EPT winner since he captured the 2008 EPT German Open title as an 18-year-old. Unfortunately, being named prom king of the poker world doesn’t do as much for his bankroll as the $1.37 million that he won in the EPT German Open.
It was confusing to see Tom Dwan and Anatoly Filatov making the cut for the game’s most appealing men, but we suppose the list needed some variety. Anatoly Filatov may have been on the list just because he wears a bow tie and suspenders… not a lot of guys can pull that look off.
Along with McDonald, Dwan and Filatov, there was mention of Ole Schemion. We suspect Ole Schemion’s smile won over the hearts of MBP.com, landing him a spot in the top 5 dreamiest poker stars. Daniel Colman has also achieved high marks, checking in at number two. We can only imagine that women would be equally impressed with Colman’s $22.3 million in winnings last year along with his looks.
