    LOL @ eli...at least people who he owes money to will know where he will be one day next year to collect...

    gotta put moneymaker in there...obviously he's no ivey, but without him we don't have the silliness that was 2003-2006...

    I feel like Devilfish is a lock not necessarily because he deserves it over many of the others but it's the "death card" that will probably get him in.

    Moneymaker deserves it simply on the impact he brought to growing the game. I'd give the other spot to Carlos Mortensen.

    Devilfish was nominated last year (almost right after his death iirc) and didn't get in

Sure Ulliot wasn't the most popular person and could be an ass but hey so could Todd for that matter and Devilfish was far superior a player to Todd..

    Based on Hendon Mob heres the facts:

    Devilfish: Highest ranking Money All Time 18th, Currently 105th All Time (and been dead since last year), Best Live cash $674.5K, Career Totals: $6,218,292

    Brunson: Highest ranking Money All Time 69th, Currently 196th (Below Ulliot whos dead), Best live cash $500k, Career $4,291,671

    Its not even friggin close..

    ^^^ - I look at it as a breath of fresh air that they aren't just looking at donkament winnings for the criteria because Todd has beaten some of the biggest cash games in the world back in the day.
