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: A player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition Played for high stakes Played consistently well, gaining the respect of peers Stood the test of time Or, for non-players, contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible positive and lasting results *Chris "Jesus" Ferguson* *Prediction:* *Barry Greenstein* * * *Prediction:* *Dan Harrington* Harrington on Hold'em* * *Prediction:* *Phil Ivey* *Prediction:* *Linda Johnson* * * *Prediction:* *Tom McEvoy* *Prediction:* *Jennifer Harman-Traniello* *Prediction:* *Daniel Negreanu* *Prediction:* *Scotty Nguyen* *Prediction:* Only a Barry Greenstein induction stops Seidel from going into the Hall of Fame this year.
