Bluff Magazine has come out with its annual list of the most powerful and influential people in poker. The Power 20, as they call them, are chosen by 51 poker industry insiders.
It comes as no surprise that the events of last year (Black Friday, etc) leave their mark on the list, one result being that this year's Power 20 involved the largest number of non-North American voters.
