There are many ways to measure how great a player someone is, and maybe we will never truly know the answer. One way to measure is who plays best at very high stakes. If you invited everyone in the world who would be willing to compete for money at, say, $1 Million a point, David would probably rank pretty high on the list and therefore, using that criteria, he might be one of the best players in the world.
Truth is, many of the "best players in the world" are off the radar of our Giant list today, though I am sure that our top Giants could give anyone a run for their money.
