Barely a week goes by when poker isn’t the talking point in the online gambling industry. Tongues were given an excuse to wag earlier this month when the latest nominees for the Poker Hall of Fame were released. Why wasn’t such and such there and why had so and so found there way onto the ballo?.
In a perfect world we’d have gathered them all together for a charity beer pong tournament to decide the winner. Fortunately we had another, infinitely more democratic option to fall back on…the Weekly Poll. We asked readers Which Previous Nominee is a Dead Cert for the Poker Hall of Fame?
Coming in dead last was the lone female in the quartet Jennifer Harman with 6 percent.
Third place went to former WSOP Main Event champ Tom McEvoy with 19 percent.
Five time bracelet winner John Juanda could only manage 23 percent and settled for second place.
In the end it was all a bit unanimous as Scotty Nguyen got 52 percent and showed that much of the gambling industry consider him a shoo-in for a place in the Hall. ‘The Train’ has five WSOP bracelets under his belt and remains the only player to have won the Main Event and Players Championship.
This week’s poll is again based on poker as we ask readers After The Lederer Files, who do you want to see grilled next? Would you rather see Jesus brought down a peg or two, or have you always wondered how wide a screen you would need to fit Ray Bitar onto it? Now you can decide!
