2014 Poker Hall of Fame

The time has arrived. It's the time of the year when the public get to say whom they think should be nominated for The Poker Hall of Fame as the first steep in determining the final inductees. The Poker Hall of Fame traditionally elects one or two members every year. This year the enshrinement ceremony will be held in concert with the final table of the 2014 WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas (November[...]   Read more » 2014 Poker Hall of Fame

It will be very interesting to see who joins the legends already in the Hall Of Fame. I always look forward to this every year and the inductees are always worthy of this great honour

I agree with you doubletop777 .
What I find peculiar is that in the criteria for being nominated you have to be 40 years old,surely that is wrong when someone who has started at age 18 online and been playing for 10/15 years consistently winning,maybe winning a few bracelets before the age of 25,gaining respect from his peers yet that person cannot be nominated.
I have read about poker players retiring before they are 40,maybe the rules should be updated.

Yeah hope we get some good people to the Hall of poker fame, maybe go Victor Blom, he is good but the requirements is a bit too far fetch as he is just too young and requirements is to be at least 40 years. I think they put that so people are judged on the long term rather than the short one. Cheers maybe hope we get some good one up there as there are a few that fit this criteria. Anyway have fun at the tables guys and cannot wait for it to be announced!

I remember of some of the discussion about this subject during the last year and the year before, and although people tend to advance with some names, mainly because of their fame and known fortune made at the game, there's a bunch of other factors that players need to acomplish to be in this hall of fame that makes the choice a bit more complex.

Hall of Fame is Hall of fame, this basicaly useless and meaningless like any other hall of fames (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - goddamn ABBA is inducted - what in the world ABBA gave to the world of rock is beyond me, what a joke) but we can banter about it, like it was something to look for.

It's not. Gamblers HoF. The only HoF which matters is David HasselHof Big Smile

I think we need to wait another 20 years or something like that in order to be able to nominate viktor blom in the poker hall of fame...

There are many names that deserve to be there, i think it's much simple to vote than to nominate. We'll see the results.
