    Exactly. Defeating or killing six armed and armoured men in a matter of moments while armed with a piece of wood is distinctly amazing, no matter how 'amateurish' they are. I bet he would have dealt with Ser Meryn just the same if he'd had his real sword.

    Shit, I forgot he was training with Arya when they came. I need to seriously reread these books.

    I voted for Syrio, but I think I take it back. He'd win duels by dancing around his opponents and maybe tiring them, but in a melee like this, I think he'd suffer a cheap shot in the back or side or something while he was being all nimble and quick. It'd be a different story though I think if he actually is Jaquen.

    Jamie Lannister, it took quite a few to capture him in the first place, and he nearly beat Bienne with shackles (handcuffs) on. we didn't get to witness it first hand, but i belive he was great.

    syrio is my second choice, but i think he was a different kind of fighter, a 'dancer' as he called it. but i may be wrong, i think that jamie and syrio would be the last two

    I really think that Syrio would have won because he is the fastest fighter that we have seen. (this is assumed because he fights with a rapier which depends solely on speed) Between the Clegeons I think the hound would have won.

    Really? I voted Gregor. Mostly because he's Gregolem now.

    I voted the Hound. Gregor may be good, but Sandor's smarter :D.

    The Hound, Gotta love The Hound. His hate for his brother will be enough to win, against his brother that is.

    I had to go with Barristan. He's orsum. :D lol. Such a great fighter, and at that age as well!

    I was actually a little disappointed Arthur Dayne wasn't there. He's probably my favourite swordsman. Even though he's dead. :p

    I think the Hound would win. No nonsense when it comes to him, plus he has that suspicious hero quality... (remember when he beat off Beric Dondarrion)

    I don't know... It is not easy to decide. I voted for Jaime, but I doubt it.
    Maybe Hound or Barristan...
    Don't you think Barristan is too old?

    Barristan's old but he's still pretty good...he'd definitely compete with the others at his peak, and maybe now too.

    Why has no one said Gregor? He is a massive dude whos reach is as long as a spear, and he can still crush your skull even when he is pinned to the ground. The guy is a tank and fending off a blow from him has to take alot. Lets just rember it was the poison that killed him not the blows that the Viper got in.
