Mike Sexton, not because of his pokerskills (though he is a top player i think), but because of what he did for poker the last years (and still does). especially his work as commentator is great (i guess poker on tv wouldn't be that successful without him). and he helped poker to get away from that "illegal gambling" image and made the public see it as a sport-like competition. ivey would be a good choice too, as he is IMO the best pokerplayer and he is beating the highest stakes for years. he will be part of the hall of fame anyway the next years, but at the moment Sexton deserves it more.

NO Durrrr, must have been reading my posts . Only 3 of the list stand out to me, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and Barry Greenstein now coz I already know that Ivey is going to get in im gonna vote Barry Greenstein and the main reason being that not only does he contabute a lot to poker and stood the test of time, but he kinda goes unnoticed wich I think is great for any high profile and does a lot of charity work showing that poker is not only for themoney hungry Durrrrs of the world.... GO Greenstein...BTW if you disagreee your wrong.

I voted for Mike Sexton because to be in the Poker Hall of Fame is not just to have won a lot of money against some of the biggest pros, it is also to help developing the name of poker world wide, and Mike Sexton is the one who have made more for poker from the list. Daniel Negreanu is also in a good way to be there one day, considering is atitude towards the game. Remember he is now making social responsability gaming, with prizes to institutions, and that is more significant to the world of poker than playing and winning a $1,000,000 pot.
Tom McEvoy - for winning main event and the champion of champions event where he drove off in the corvette along wi a s**t load of prize money - besides beating just about every wsop winner alive among others.
