The Poker Hall of Fame
The Poker Hall of Fame is located in the Binions Horseshoe Casino, Las Vegas, and was founded in 1979 by Benny Binion to pay homage to the best poker players in history and attract more tourists to the horseshoe. A new player is inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame almost every year, except for the first inauguration of seven founding members in its founding year.
There are simple but strict criteria a player must follow in order to be included in the Hall of Fame:
- The player must have played high stakes.
- The player must have played at the biggest events with strong opponents.
- The player must have played consistently well and won the respect of his colleagues.
- The player must be successful over a specific trial period
As of today, in 2018, there are 54 players in total who have been admitted to the Poker Hall of Fame and 22 of them are still alive.
