Yesterday, I told you guys about the new nominations for the Poker Hall of Fame. I saved my opinions until today so to give them their moment as that moment is definitely earned. Now that we all have had a day to process, I will give my reasons that the fact that Dan Harrington got into the Hall before Phil Ivey is utter BS. Reason #1.

The Poker Hall of Fame announced it's new class today. Erik Seidel and Dan Harrington were both announced today to be the 2010 inductees to the Poker Hall of Fame. Dan Harrington is naturally deserving of enshrinement. He has two WSOP bracelets, including his 2005 Main Event win.

Poker Hall of Fame Thoughts

I listened to an interview earlier this evening where Barry Greenstein discussed the Poker Hall of Fame and who deserved to make it in. He stated that he would vote Phil Ivey and Mike Sexton into the Hall of Fame. Greenstein also stated his case for Sexton's induction. His case was great, but I thought I would give some of my thoughts on the nine candidates up for election: Barry Greenstein - Barry is a phenomenal player both in cash games and in tournaments.
