Doyle Brunson blogs about Poker Hall of Fame nominees

Thursday, 14 October 2010

Apparently next month there’s a final table of some description playing out – the Partouche Poker Tour. We’re joking, that is happening but this is about the November Nine and the final table of the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event. Or, more accurately, the events surrounding it.

As well as the end of the WSOP, the Poker Hall of Fame will see one or two more players join the hallowed ranks of poker’s legends. The fourteen living members of the Hall of Fame will join selected media to vote in their top two choices out of a star-studded list of nominees.

The oldest of the living Hall of Famers, Doyle Brunson, has blogged at Doyle’s Room about his thoughts on the Hall of Fame nominees. To be inducted, a player must have played against top competition at high stakes; played consistently well over a long period of time; contributed to the overall growth and success of poker.

In Doyle’s opinion there are four players on the list of nominees that fulfil all criteria – Barry Greenstein, Eric Seidel, Jennifer Harman-Traniello and Phil Ivey; Brunson did say he believes Phil needs to be older. Brunson confirmed that he gave almost all of his votes to Seidel.
