I don´t now a lot about this players, but i´m not sure is that ok or not. Off course both players are verry good, but the Hall of fame was only for the top poker Players ever in my opinion. I saw some games with Mortensen in poker tv Shows in the past and i must say, he plays really good.

well good for them i guess, not that it makes any difference to their bankrolls or anything... but hey you can always say to some random dude who beats you holding 26o- yeah you beat me here, but are you included in the poker hall of fame? then stand up ans exit gracefully into the night
I can agree about Mortensen to be included in the hall of fame but Todd have not done enough yet to be in it and I might wrong though... I like both but I think the new generation of poker players is not an advantage for them to produce results they did in the past...
Brunson for me is a man who is always with the card 2, and 10 plays as if he had something good in my hand .... I sometimes also play with this hand))) and just remember him and his game ... but in general it seems to me it is more than worthy of a player, and many should learn from him
Very few woman on the list with the name of the fellow HOF members. Not saying poker is a sexist sport but seeing now every other poker outlet have at least one woman pro as an 'ambassador' there is really no reason to not nominate more of them. Its really just a big boys club from the outside by the look of it.

I have heard of the first one only. Making that hall of fame doesnt mean much for me actually. Winning as much money as you can, in your career as a poker player is the most important thing. The rest are "attention injections"
