Last night it was announced that Jennifer Harman and John Juanda are the newest members of the Poker Hall of Fame! The two American poker pros will be officially inducted on Friday, November 6 at 7:00 pm at Binion's Gambling Place in Las Vegas.

Below you'll find some information about Harman and Juanda and their comments on being inducted (information from into the Poker Hall of Fame, which currently has 50 members.

"It's truly an honor to be selected into the PHOF," said Harman. "Poker has been an unbelievable journey for me and to have the respect of my peers is truly amazing.  I want to thank everyone for the amazing support.  I'm so happy!!!!"

"I appreciate the recognition," said Juanda. "It's an honor to see my name among so many players I have admired and respected throughout my career: Chip Reese, Erik Seidel, Dan Harrington, Daniel Negreanu.  Thank you to all the fans who nominated me and to the HOF and media members who voted me in."

Jen Harman has a long list of tournament accomplishments, including more than $2.7 million in earnings, two WPT final tables, 12 WSOP final tables, and the honor of being the first woman to win multiple WSOP bracelets in open events.  However, what might be even more impressive than her tournament results is her skills in the cash games.  The Reno, Nevada native has been a staple in the biggest cash games in Vegas for more than a decade and is one of the only women to play cash at such high stakes.  The mother of two also dedicates much of her time to using poker to raise money for charitable causes, including the National Kidney Foundation and the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Johnson "John" Juanda is a 44-year-old Indonesian-born poker pro who doesn't do much talking, but his poker resume speaks for itself.  He has amassed more than $17 million in tournament winnings, including five WSOP gold bracelets, an EPT title, plus WPT, APT, PPT, and many other tournament victories.  He's also won wherever he has went, with victories in Europe, Australia, Asia and North America.  A long-time U.S. resident, Juanda came to the United States in 1990 to attend college at Oklahoma State University and then went on to receive his Master's Degree from Seattle University.  But since 1997 John has made his income on the felt and in so doing has cemented himself as one of the most consistent and successful players of the last two decades.

Well done to Harman and Juanda......I don't think it was much of a surprise,from the publicity from the WSOP it seemed clear that there was definitely going to be a woman and Juanda had a great year so deserved it.
