Scotty Nguyen and Tom McEvoy were elected to the Poker Hall of Fame last Friday. The two former world champions have some impressive resumes and both have contributed to the growth of the game. In total, they been nominated a combined 9 times (McEvoy 5 times and Scotty 4 times) before they finally were choosen.

McEvoy, 68,  created a name for himself in the poker world 30 years ago when he won the WSOP Main Event and became the first ever champion to earn his buy-in through a satellite tournament. McEvoy has 4 WSOP bracelets and almost $2 million in lifetime tournament earnings, and he has authored and co-written a number of strategy books.

The highlights of Scotty Nguyen's poker career are the wins at the 1998 WSOP Main Event and the 2008 WSOP $50,000 H.O.R.S.E event (an unforgettable final table). Scotty is currently 12th on the all-time money list with about $12 million in tournament winnings and he has five WSOP gold bracelets to his name.

The official induction ceremony will be held in conjunction with the 2013 WSOP Main Event final table on November 3 at the Rio in Las Vegas.

Really glad Scotty got in. He's such a character with skill to back up his table talk and a likeable guy that it seemed a no brainer to have him finally inducted.

Yeah congratulations to both and a special praise for Nguyen, I like this player, hope those youngsters nowadays will live to be a legend like him and make the hall of fame.

Keep it up guys, hope that in 50 eyars or so we will heard about the poker kid, Blom etc.

Cheers!

Well mu Lithuanina friend ... I have to admit

I MISSED IT TOO

the news was not on the belgian TV so I think there are more important things going on...

Hello wonderful mobster thefly131, this is your friend pochui from Lithuania, somewhere near the sea writing to you, wish a good day and prosperity.

yeah i missed Ronin as well, hope he's doing well

Wish you the best of luck at the tables, off the tables, behind the tables, under the tables and in your life in general.
Yours truly pochui, somewhere near the sea, Lithuania

(oh and i must admit Belgium have a great squad on paper for the upcoming World Cup)

my dear lithuanian friend

I also hope that Ronin is doing fine and stays out of hospital.

For the Belgium football squad... they are even better than the squad of 1980 and 1986 ...

1980 Belgium finished 2 nd on the EC (lost final vs west-Germany)

1986 semi final on WC (lost vs Argentina)

The squad now is even better and they have a great coach .... so who knows..

A bet on them is a good thing to do as they are only seen as outsider

and watch out for tables...

I think both players definately deserve the place they got.

Even if Tom it's not such an known player his performance it's definately important. I think Moneymaker should enter in the same category.

As for Scotty his place is defiantely there Smile
