2024 Poker Hall of Fame Nominations now open

Posted on 13 June 2024 by "T".

The latest member of the Poker Hall of Fame shall be announced on July 14.

As the 55th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) is currently ongoing, the nominations for the 2024 Poker Hall of Fame are now open.

Poker players and fans can nominate for their favorite poker personality at WSOP.com/PHOF to become the 2024 Poker Hall of Fame inductee.

Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker, said:
"With the poker world losing original participants of the 1970 WSOP in the last two years, it's more important than ever to celebrate the history of the game. The Poker Hall of Fame is meant to make sure legends who paved the way for today's record-setting fields are never forgotten, and we thank poker fans for their help putting forth worthy candidates during the nomination process."

Nominations will stay open until Sunday, June 16 when all submissions are tabulated and the top 10 nominations are reviewed by the Poker Hall of Fame Governing Council. That list will then be sent to the existing Poker Hall of Fame members to cast their votes to determine the 2024 member.

Unlike in the past years, there is no mention of select members of the poker media being allowed to vote. The name of the 2024 inductee will be revealed on Sunday, July 14. The inductee will receive a plaque to be displayed at the World Series of Poker Hall of Fame Poker Room, which opened at Horseshoe Las Vegas in 2023.

The main criteria for the Poker Hall of Fame are as follows:

  • A player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition
  • Played for high stakes
  • Be a minimum of 40 years old at time of nomination
  • Played consistently well, gaining the respect of peers
  • Stood the test of time
  • Or, for non-players, contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible positive and lasting results.

 

Who do you think will become the Poker Fall of Fame inductee this 2024?

With all do respect some of the main criteria for the nomination is just plain nonsense. Poker is a very up and down game, sometimes these players are going through years and years of downswings - no one really plays it consistently well because the game itself has a decent amount of built-in high variance and the meta-game part of it keep changing for this very reason.

as I remember they always choose some big name to go in hall of fame, but we will see how it will be this year!

It's the first time I've heard about such nominations. I had no interest in it at all. But from what has been said, only a certain group of players have a chance of being nominated, I think the most famous ones. On the one hand, OK, I understand this idea, but on the other hand, it is worth thinking about people who are less known but are also persistent and play well. Although you can probably nominate someone less famous, but they probably won't win.

Will be very interesting to see who will be introduced in this Hall of Fame. I know there is a lot of famous names but in the end we will see who will be in this and who will be not. Can't wait to see the results.
