Daniel Negreanu was always going to getting into the Hall of Fame and he is definitely one of the more deserving of the accolade.He is always entertaining to watch when he is playing and when he speaks in interviews it is usually done with good grace no matter what has happened to him in the game.

Well I for one think it is GREAT that Daniel Negreanu has made it into the "Poker Hall of Fame" Daniel is without question one of my favorite players. He conducts himself with class and is a great ambassador for poker. Hope things continue to go well for him. be cool
How exactly did I miss this news last year? This was linked from the other Negreanu thread so I decided on checking out. Though I find it a bit funny that Scotty Nguyen has became HoF player sooner than Daniel. I guess this is just like the oscars, if you are there long enough you'll probably end up with one too.
