Barry Greenstein and Linda Johnson are now officially members of the Poker Hall of Fame after a special induction ceremony as part of the November Nine festivities last night.
Linda Johnson isn't a household name on this side of the pond but has been a big figure on the US scene for many years. Probably best known for publishing Card Player magazine Johnson was also involved in the creation of the World Poker Tour, PokerGives.org, the PPA and the Ladies International Poker Series. She is also one of only 15 women to hold a WSOP bracelet after winning the $1.5k Razz title in 1997.With three WSOP bracelets, two WPT titles and countless TV appearances Barry Greenstein needs no introduction. A high stakes regular, large donor to charitable causes and a fine media performer, the 56-year-old has $7.5m in tournament earnings.“Most of my accomplishments are the result of battles across the poker table,” said Greenstein. “Normally I wouldn’t be that thrilled about getting an award as a result of a vote. However, after seeing the great year Erik Seidel after getting inducted into the Hall of Fame, I’m kinda looking forward to that Hall of Fame rungood.” The pair become the 41st and 42nd members of the Hall of Fame which already includes the likes of Doyle Brunson, Mike Sexton, Phil Hellmuth, Dan Harrington, Erik Seidel and TJ Cloutier.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
