The Hendon Mob is a database of poker results which provides data on which tournament poker players are searched for the most by the user community.
As of Saturday, April 15, the top 7 poker pros in terms of popularity were:
1. David Dao
2. Fedor Holz
3. Daniel Negreanu
4. Daniel Colman
5. Erik Seidel
6. Justin Schwartz
7. Maurice Hawkins
The ranking of the first player on the list was determined by real-life news as Dao was in the spotlight last Sunday due to an incident with his United Airlines flight. After all the passengers were boarded, the airline requested that four seats be given up to accommodate extra crew members. One of those selected was Dao who did not voluntarily leave the plane and was injured as a result of the forceful removal procedure.
David Dao has pocketed over $265K in tournaments in recent years. For instance, he was a runner up in the $5K World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah’s Tunica Main Event in 2009.
