2024 Poker Hall of Fame nominations are now open

6 Jun 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- With the 55th annual World Series of Poker officially underway, nominations for the 2024 Poker Hall of Fame are now open. Poker players and fans can submit a nominee and must include a brief explanation for their choice.

“With the poker world losing original participants of the 1970 WSOP in the last two years, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the history of the game,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “The Poker Hall of Fame is meant to make sure legends who paved the way for today’s record-setting fields are never forgotten, and we thank poker fans for their help putting forth worthy candidates during the nomination process.”

Nominations will remain open through Sunday, 16 June when all submissions will be tabulated, and the top 10 nominations reviewed by the Poker Hall of Fame Governing Council. The existing Poker Hall of Fame members will then cast votes on the final list of nominees to determine the 2024 inductee.

The 2024 Poker Hall of Fame nominee will be announced on July 14, 2024. The inductee will receive a plaque to be displayed at the World Series of Poker Hall of Fame Poker Room, which opened at Horseshoe Las Vegas in 2023.

The Poker Hall of Fame criteria are as follows:

- Must have played poker against acknowledged top competition
- Be a minimum of 40-years-old at time of nomination
