Team PokerStars Pros up for Poker Hall of Fame

September 09, 2009


The poker world is set to bestow one of its highest honors to a veteran of the game, and three members of Team PokerStars Pro have been nominated for the spot.

Members of the Poker Hall of Fame voting committee are preparing to decide which of the nine nominees should be named among the people who played a game-changing role in the poker realm. Among the nominees are Team Pros Barry Greenstein, Tom McEvoy, and Kid Poker, Daniel Negreanu.


Among the criteria judges will use to decide who makes it into the Hall of Fame:

  • A player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition
  • Played for high stakes
  • 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.
  • The three members of Team Pro are being considered along with Dan Harrington, Phil Ivey, Men Nguyen, Scotty Nguyen, Erik Seidel, and Mike Sexton.

    The voting panel will be submitting its ballots over the next few weeks. The inductees will be honored at a special ceremony and dinner during the 2009 World Series of Poker final table this November.
