      I play on NL10 and this is my rank:

      1. United Kingdom. (they play really bad most of the time very loose, very aggressive, tend to bluff a lot, they often play drunk)
      2. Netherlands. (usually bad with exceptions, loose and passive, I guess they smoke too much weed while playing which makes them passive)
      3. Exotic countries like Brazil, Peru, South Africa.

      I'll forward this theory to our Dutch community manager. Let's see what he says ;)

      Good luck at the tables!

      and the best players? :P

      I find Americans to be horrible but maybe that's just my medium/tight-aggressive strategy working quite well against their loose passive playstyle (although loose passive still sucks in general)

      I miss the French in your list. Usually when I see a bad play, it's some french guy/gall. They always make me smile when I'm at the same table.
      I heared they're even worse than Americans, although I never played someone from US.

      I kinda take offense being listed as your #2. Loose passive is what the majority plays in 10nl. For me the green stuff works different too, it's more something like

      "4,5,6,7,9...., 4...5...6...7...9, yesss, I got a straight... shove and double fistpump.... oh wait, what.... let's go for some chocolate..."

      worst 3 in my opinion (generally):
      1. Ireland



      and then there is a big gap here



      2. France
      3. Canada

      best 3 in my opinion (generally):
      1. Denmark (I haven't seen a single danish fish on pp/titan poker yet)
      2. Finland (I am the only finnish fish out there :D )
      3. Germany

      It isn't a big surprice that you list Denmark as the best country in general - We simply rule ;)

      Nah, just kidding, there will always be good and bad players from every country.. Sadly I never played against any Americans, and I generally only played the micro limits where there are plenty fishs, so i guess i'm not the best to make a list.. But we can probably all agree to one thing: A PS player is likely to be better than the average player, whether he is from UK, Denmark, Germany or some other country!

      Glad to know that I live in an exotic country.

      right at the top are french and canadians imo. germans are usually the best, because of PS -.- Not sure if there's that much of a difference elsewhere, i don't usually check nationalities

      I'm not one to stereotype, but the FRENCH are the worst players i've come across.

      They'll play any 2 cards to the bitter end.

      (Oh and i'm an Aussie living in the UK, seems I have a bad rep around here ;) )

      unfortunately (being Australian), i have to agree...a lot of my countrymen are very poor, i think it's because of the amount of free poker leagues that are run here. That reputation is good for me though, because people never seem to get the idea that if i'm putting money in the pot i have the best hand ;)


      Oh, dont forget the french...when you see an AQA board and someones all in, it's usually a frenchman with K3!!

      Or yesterday when the board was AA2K, and I pushed with AK, he called with 23o, raised on every street. :D

      The amount of big pots i've won with a high card against the french is crazy.
