The Poker Hall of Fame is an extremely exclusive club, and grows by only one or two each year. Beginning last year, the Poker Hall of Fame opened up the nomination process to the public, allowing poker fans to nominate their favorite poker players –so long as they meet the criteria set out by the Hall of Fame—through an online submission form.

The top 10 nominees will then be voted on by all living Poker Hall of Fame members, as well as a special panel of poker media magnates. Last year saw Mike Sexton join his peers in the Poker Hall of Fame, and also saw Tom Dwan eliminated from the final list despite being one of the Top 10 vote-getters –at 22 Dwan failed to meet all of the criteria for Hall of Fame induction, which includes:

* 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

Poker fans not only nominate a player, but must also include a short reason why they feel the person should be inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame.
