The Finalists for 2019 Poker Hall of Fame

Tags: Antonio Esfandiari, Chris Ferguson, Eli Elezra, poker hall of fame.
Posted on 24 June 2019 by "T".

With the 2019 WSOP currently ongoing, the WSOP has announced this Sunday, June 23, the top 10 finalists eligible for the 2019 Poker Hall of Fame. Just one or two will be inducted.

The list of 10 poker players was created after a process of public nomination and a vetting of these nominations by the Poker Hall of Fame Governing Council. The decision now falls in the hands of 30 living members and 21 poker-industry media experts to determine who gets inducted.

Which one or two of these 10 legends of the game will be the lucky ones to be inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame come July 15?

  • Antonio Esfandiari
  • Chris Bjorin
  • Chris Ferguson
  • Chris Moneymaker
  • David Chiu
  • David Oppenheim
  • Eli Elezra
  • Huck Seed
  • Mike Matusow
  • Ted Forrest

 

Everyone except for Esfandiari had been among the final 10 at least one of the past years. Last year, it was John Hennigan and Mori Eskdandani who were inducted as the 55th and 56th members.

The age requirement for being eligible for the Poker Hall of Fame is 40 years and above. Aside from that, other criteria state that the player must have competed "against acknowledged top competition" and "for high stakes," while playing "consistently well" and "gaining the respect of peers." Also, the player must have "stood the test of time." For those in the industry but are not or were not professional poker players, they must have "contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible positive and lasting results." As of now, there are 54 people who have met those requirements.

The 2019 Poker Hall of Fame class shall be inducted as part of the World Series of Poker Main Event final table celebration in Las Vegas on July 15.

Everyone has their favorite for the list.
I would say take the one with the most winnings in games and money
and be done with it. Do the same for the follow up Smile
The age requirement limits the list. But there has to be one either way Smile

I would opt for Chris Ferguson and Mike Matusow. Ted Forrest and Huck Seed they also have a good opportunity to succeed and to get in Poker Hall Of Fame. I do not think any of these 6 players which have remained will have great chances to won.

I only know about half of them, the rest I have no idea they'd even exist. Would not suprise me if Esfandiari makes it.

It will be very interesting to know the result which will be in the end .... I think we will learn everything on this site .... follow the news

Let me tell you something guys this all seems good and they are probably great players but i have no idea who these people are Big Smile
The people i follow are daniel negreanu/ Phil Ivey and Charlie Carrel
Anyway good luck to all of them bet they are all good players.

I have no idea who Charlie Carrel is and you do not know who some players are. This is not a problem and with the time you can learn about some professional players. I read that it is just the top 10 players but i was referring to this list. They are real players that deserve a place in Poker Hall Of Fame.

They are the pool out of which the initial selected players are going to be choosen into the Hall. Every year there is a different pool of players considered for HOF.

It’s strange that you don’t know great poker players ..... of course I don’t know everyone either .... but I know 6 names from this list .... I know them as great poker players so they absolutely deserve the right to get a seat in the Hall of Fame poker ... You probably are not very closely following the poker world so you do not know these names

I'am suprised you didn't hear about him because he was a really big thing in "News" by turning his 10e in 3,000,000e you can check some of his video which i enjoy watching alot him trying to bust up his bankroll in cash games apsolutely playing amazing.
He was even in Pokerstars Championship playing against Daniel and Kevin Hart.
