Maybe it is nice to be in this group of players, but I really do not understand whatnisnthe use of this? You do not get anything just some diploma you can put on your wall and show friends and talk about this for some moments, but no financial use of this that i see.

David "Devilfish" Ulliot Has only one bracelet but has finished 33 times in money. I say it deserves this. Phil Ivey is a much better player with 10 bracelets with 55 times in money. He certainly deserved that. It's true had more ugly times in full tilt but is the great player. Congratulations for that and for devilfish although he died.

hello my friends and fellow mobsters
Well those two deserve the nomination they brought the poker game to a higher level
David "devilfish" ulliot was a very good player and very funny at the TV tables made poker even more popular (RIP) Phil Ivey was a poker machine cold as ice and ruthless with the opponents sadly turned is focus away and the results were never the same

Many congratulations to the Poker Hall of Fame class of 2017: David "Devilfish" Ulliott and Phillip Ivey! They both deserve to be honored. Sadly, David Ulliott passed away in April 2015, so his family is left to accept this honor in his place.

To be considered as a nominee for the PHOF, a player should be at least 40 years old, played for high stakes, has played poker against top competition, and played well enough to stand the test of time- and has earned the respect and admiration of their peers... have no clue why the hell Mike Matusow wasn't inducted.

I dont know if it matters that much to the players. When everyone starts they are having in their minds winning money out of it. But when they start climbing maybe their goals change to, and they want to be remembered for it Well leave the fame out of it. I will take only the money. If only i could

I personally believe that Phil Ivey cares very little about this award as he is a born cash player, he plays only for large sums of money, as he will not even play a single event of the wsop 2017 clearly implying that Poker tournaments do not care in the least.-

I dont think that there can many complaints about these two great players being put in the hall Of fame. The 'Devilfish' was always one of my favourite players to watch and he is sadly missed to this day
I'm not very familiar with the second player but I believe that he deserved a place in the hall of fame ... and Phil Ivey is certainly the greatest player I think ... and he definitely deserved this place in the hall of fame .... maybe someone from BRM will also be there someday
