Poker Hall Of Fame Short List Drawn Up

The usual for and against exchanges accompany this year's proposals

Amid the usual for-and-against exchanges on who should or should not be on it, the international Poker Hall of Fame short list was published this week following a period of intense public voting and a stringent vetting on nominations by the Poker Hall of Fame Governing Council.
Two thirds of the 2016 list is made up of non-American players, which will probably rattle a few cages if only on patriotic grounds, but there can be no denying that the following are quality and respected players who have done much to put poker on the map and entertain millions of fans:
Chris Bjorin
Humberto Brenes
Todd Brunson
Eli Elezra
Bruno Fitoussi
Chris Moneymaker
Carlos Mortensen
Max Pescatori
Matt Savage
Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliot
To qualify for the list players must meet the following requirements:
* Competed against quality competition in poker games;
* Aged forty years or over;
* Be experienced in high stakes poker;
* Hold the respect of peers for consistently playing with integrity and skill;
* Have stood the test of time

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
