“HOF list has more to do w marketing than w accomplishment. David Chiu, Huck, David Oppenheim & John Hennigan should all be top of the ballot.. Need changes in nomination process for HOF. Also eligible voters can use all 10 of their points for 1 person which can lead to collusion.”
Daniel Negreanu
“I say this every year as a reminder: PHOF criteria for players says NOTHING about being an ambassador nor should it. Rate them on RESULTS.”

“Omg one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen at the poker table just happened behind me.. “I’m chipleader at MY table.” A few minutes later I hear him erupt “WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST CALL ME WITH? A TEN HIGH FLUSH?”.. See him ship over a monster pot to some dude. VERY NEXT HAND I hear “FLOOR” and “did you even look?” Same guy is all-in, there’s a flop out.. And the guy literally has three cards in his hand. Floor rules his hand is dead and his whole stack gets shipped over to his opponent.”
