The 2010 nominees for Poker Hall of Fame

The process of choosing a poker player to enter the Poker Hall of Fame is close to completion as we now have the votes of the public. For 2 months the public has voted for their favourite players.

The chosen players will then be analysed by a 16 member committee which will take the final decision as to whom is the most ‘virtuous’ of them. Besides the player nominated for 2010, the committee will also choose a player that will automatically enter in the next year’s selection process.

The criteria for entering the Poker Hall of Fame is:

  • The player had to play against acknowledged top competition
  • To play for high stakes
  • To play consistently well
  • To prove his/her abilities for a long period of time
  • Or, for non-players, to have contributed to the development of the poker game in the long term

  • CHRIS FERGUSON
  • BARRY GREENSTEIN
  • JENNIFER HARMAN-TRANIELLO
  • DAN HARRINGTON
  • PHIL IVEY
