Juanda and Harman Picked for 2015 Poker Hall Of Fame

Juanda and Harman Picked for 2015 Poker Hall Of FameEach year, the Poker Hall Of Fame chooses two members to join its hallowed ranks, with past winners including such legendary players as Doyle Brunson (1998), David Reese (1991), Stu Ungar (2001), Phil Hellmuth (2007), Erik Seidel (2010), and Daniel Negreanu (2014). This year’s nominations also included a list of players each of whom could deservedly have been inducted as members, but in the end it was Jennifer Harman and John Juanda who were honored with the accolade. Commenting on the 2015 Poker Hall Of Fame inductees, HOF governing council member Ty Stewart, said:
“Congratulations to the newest members of the Poker Hall of Fame. Both Jen and John are well-respected, long-time poker players who have paid their dues and deserving to represent the 2015 Class of the Poker Hall of Fame.”
Jennifer Harman, 50, now becomes just one of three females to join the Hall Of Fame, following in the footsteps of Barbara Enright (2007) and Linda Johnson (2011). Over her career, the 2-times WSOP bracelets holder has amassed $2,707,477 from tournaments, placing her at number 8 on the ‘Women’s All Time Money List’. She is also noted for competing at the highest cash game stakes in Vegas, as well as being a regular contributor to charity, including the National Kidney Foundation, and the Nevada Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
John Juanda, 44, was born in Indonesia but after traveling to the US in 1990 and earning a degree and MBA, he became a poker pro in 1997. Juanda’s poker career has been stellar, too, having earned 5 WSOP bracelets, and $17,250,677 from tournaments, placing him in 10th spot overall on poker’s ‘All Time Money List’.
Both players will now have to wait until November 6th to officially be welcomed into the 2015 Poker Hall Of Fame, with the ceremony taking place just before the November Nine resume their quest to find this year’s WSOP Main Event champion.
