Nominees for the 2010 Poker Hall of Fame have been announced. Not sure who we’re voting for yet–or if we’re voting for any of them.
Here’s the list, along with some thoughts on each:
:: Chris “Jesus” Ferguson – Has a Main Event win, five bracelets, is a Full Tilt founder, but hasn’t done much lately…or enough yet.
:: Barry Greenstein – Probably five more years of relevance away from a vote.
:: Jennifer Harman-Traniello – Not done enough yet. Plus didn’t she get elected into the Woman’s Poker Hall of Fame? Isn’t that enough for one year?
:: Dan Harrington – On the fence with Dan last year, still on the fence this year.
:: Phil Ivey – Tough one. If you vote for Ivey, you have to vote for Seidel. Feels like it’s postponing the inevitable not voting for Ivey at this point, but probably another couple of years away. However, anyone that doesn’t vote for Ivey is a racist.
:: Linda Johnson – Can see her getting the sentimental, “she’s such an ambassador!” vote. Not sold on her yet. Intrigued though.
:: Tom McEvoy – He might be a posthumous electee. Probably deserves more credit than he gets. Probably not getting a vote. Feels like he should marry Linda Johnson or something.
:: Daniel Negreanu – Had he pulled out a win in the WSOP-E Main Event or a bracelet over the past two years, would probably be in the discussion. Not this year though.
:: Scotty Ngyuen – Getting our vote. He’s done enough.
:: Erik Seidel – Tough one. Biggest “on the fence” guy for us. Definitely deserves election into the Twitter Hall of Fame though.
What do you think? Has Ivey done enough? Who is a lock? Who would you vote for?
