The Poker Hall of Fame has just released the names of the Top 10 finalists that will be voted on by the Hall of Fame committee. I thought I would take a few minutes and go over my thoughts on the 10 finalists.

The 10 nominees are:

Chris "Jesus" Ferguson

Barry Greenstein

Dan Harrington

Phil Ivey

Linda Johnson

Tom McEvoy

Jennifer Harman-Traniello

Daniel Negreanu

Scotty Nguyen

Erik Seidel

The criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame is as follows:



  1. A player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition


  2. Played for high stakes


  3. Played consistently well, gaining the respect of peers


  4. Stood the test of time


  5. Or, for non-players, contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible positive and lasting results
