Ok, so who is missing from the Poker Hall of Fame? First off, I feel there should be different sections of the Hall of Fame: One for contributors and one for players, along with a wing for women and international players. My list will leave out the younger players who are eligible like Jennifer Harman, Carlos Mortensen, Ted Forrest, Scotty Nguyen, Matt Savage, Joe Hachem, John Juanda and others; players that even causal poker fans know will eventually be in the Poker Hall of Fame. My focus will be on peopled that have been overlooked up to this point.
