    I'm 11 minutes in to KidPoker on Netflix and there's no possible way Daniel Negreanu is ESFJ.

    Ivey - ISTP - he plays more on gut and experience than deep theory, seems introverted as well, and isn't a great financial planner with how he blows his money at dice making me think he's a P type
    Antonius - INTJ - he just seems to have that deep intense focus that INTJs have, not much of a joker. it's hard to explain but he seems like someone who is very responsible, disciplined and organized too.
    Dwan - INTP or INTJ - I am not really sure about him, it is hard to tell with this guy. he is halfway between Antonius and Blom.
    Esfondiari - ENFJ - he's more of the plays-the-player type of guy, very sociable with the table, seems to have all his actions under control
    Hellmuth - ENTJ - no way he's anything but. he's like the ENTJest of ENTJs. he's a cocky shrewd businessman with a very intuitive understanding of various aspects of the game.
    Negreanu - ENTP or ENFP - hard to tell but he is CERTAINLY one of those two types and not a freaking ESFJ!
    Laak - ESTJ? - I am not as familiar with him but that seems to work. he's very methodical and known to use a conservative style, not as much of a deep thinker as most other pros.
    Galfond - ENTP or INTP - this guy is really talented but kind of lazy. made a lot of money and kind of shies away from getting deep down into the theory nowadays.
    Sulsky/Haxton - INTJ - I just mention these two online players because they are perfect examples of INTJs. they do everything to get an edge, put so much time into theory outside of the game, planning ahead, etc
    Blom - INTP - yeah it's pretty obvious. huge mind, knows how to play but a little stubborn and lazy, and prone to degenerate habits
    Cates (Jungleman) - INTP - it's interesting the different kind of preparation that Cates and the INTJs use, Cates is much more about playing the player and doesn't have as much of a backing strategy
    Polk (WCGRider) - ENTP - he tested as this and it makes sense

    I think INTJ is the type most likely to succeed as professional poker players, with INTP as close second. N followed by T most important. Introversion slightly preferable, J just makes you more likely to succeed, not really more skilled.
