Caesars Entertainment and WSOP have published the results of the nomination process for the Poker Hall of Fame 2011. The living members of the PhoF, in cooperation with representatives of the poker media, are to choose from the ten nominees.
As we reported, WSOP owner Caesars Entertainment (formerly Harrah’s) opened the nomination between 5th July and 14th August for the inductees of the Poker Hall of Fame in 2011. The following criteria were to be considered:
  • 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.

The list will now be discussed by living members of the PhoF, along with “a blue ribbon media panel,” in order to decide which player(s) gain the honour of a membership this year. The official induction ceremony takes place in November, together with the WSOP Main Event Final Table.
