Harrah's Seeks Input For The Poker Hall Of Fame
May 28, 2022

With the 40th Annual World Series of Poker officially underway, many in the poker community have begun discussing who this year should be enshrined into the Poker Hall of Fame and for the first time since its inception in 1979, Harrah's is letting the general public have a voice in that decision.

Usually incorporating only one or two new members a year, the Poker Hall of Fame currently holds just 37 names (16 of which are currently living), making the decision of who to add not something to be taken lightly.   On the World Series of Poker website, Harrah's gives a brief history of the Poker Hall of Fame as well as the established criteria for consideration, before it lets visitors loose to nominate players and even offer a brief explanation (up to 250 words) as to why their choice should be considered.

These submissions will be reviewed throughout the Series and an announcement of the top ten candidates will then be made during the WSOP Main Event, with the actual induction ceremony set to take place in November during the Main Event final table.

Just some of the legends already a part of the Poker Hall of Fame include Doyle Brunson, David "Chip" Reese, Stu "The Kid" Unger, Benny Binion, Jack "Treetop" Straus, Johnny Moss and Phil Hellmuth.
