cool, its always nice to see vice presidents and board members in ... poker hall of fame.

i think some legendary poker commentators and chip manufacturers should also get their place in "poker" hall of fame. And not to mention some famous rent a car agencies managers and Ben affleck. I mean hes famous, rich and loves poker, he defo deserves to be in poker hall of fame.

Not sure about giadina but shullman deserves a spot for sure, lets not forget they are competing in a largely male dominated field, which must be tough.
To make over a mill in cashes for anybody is a high achievement.

Massive achievement by Schulman at the WSOP, women no doubt can play cards and trust me some are really tough to play against whatever it is online or live.

Yeah, winning a 4000 man tournaments is quite an achievement.

She had to play good, just luck wouldn´t be enough.

I think both this ladies deserve this place so i think they are both welcomed there Smile

This shows once again why the poker game is so great, you can be young or old, women or men, at the poker table you are equal.

I think ultimately there really shouldn't be that much of a difference between men and women in poker - if the fields were balanced 50/50 over many years the winners would be fairly evenly spread, it's just a particularly masculine game or tends to attract men at least.
