I suggest Chris Moorman for his consistency and longevity online. A true dedicated pro.

Re: Internet Pokers Wall of Fame suggestions/discussion

Tournies (I don't know SNGs very well, some guys like Skaiwalkurr or some other insane SNG grinder might be worth a nomination)

JohnnyBax
Gigabet
Moorman1
apestyles
livb (Busquet)
shaundeeb

Cash:
Patrik Antonius
Mikael Thuritz
Sami Kelopuro
Johnny Lodden
Erik Sagstrom
BldSwtTrs
Tom Dwan
Viktor Blom
Ilari Sahamies
Phil Ivey
Phil Galfond
both Dang brothers
Randy Lew (Nanonoko)
Brian Townsend
Cole South
Prahlad Friedman

Would add these cash players if you're looking at pure impact on the economy and/or people who have a bit of shadiness:

Guy Laliberte (impact on economy)
Gus Hansen (impact on economy)
scout326/scout315 (impact on economy)
Brian Hastings (2x shadiness)
Mohamad Kowssarie (possible super shadiness)

If you want to keep it pure, I would not add Hastings. Or at least put an asterisk next to his name. That goes for the ones who teamed with him against Blom back in the day.

You guys are crazy with all these no-name nobodys.

Clearly this wall of fame needs the greatest, most famous player of them all. The legendary:

Tuff Fish.

Re: Internet Pokers Wall of Fame suggestions/discussion

I put this on the Show thread before noticing this thread but what about inducting anyone who wins the Pokercast game 3 times into the wall? It would be easy to keep track, just post each winner on this thread.

What about the twitchers? Jason Summerville and Jamie Staples, notably for popularizing the idea of the twitch pro celebrity.

And of course StickyRice1 for being the first known whale to stream himself playing mid/high stakes online and being a degenerate.

+1. I'm envious of everyone that is just about to discover who this is.

Re: Internet Pokers Wall of Fame suggestions/discussion

I know that we're supposed to be avoiding villains...but can't we have Howard Lederer on the wall of fame? Perhaps on a dartboard? Or maybe just propped up against the wall on the floor?

Maybe not one of the best known players anymore, but lil_holdem was a beast in the early days and apparently met an all too early demise recently

Re: Internet Pokers Wall of Fame suggestions/discussion

I would like to make a player suggestion based on play or long career online but I want to put my suggestion to see Chris Moneymaker on to the wall of fame. How different would this whole poker online look if he didn't win his way in to the main online and then the rest is history as they say.

Re: Internet Pokers Wall of Fame suggestions/discussion

I second erik123, I would argue he was the first internet pokers superstar. Prahlad Friedman was maybe the 2nd and should also be nominated.

Also, Taylor Caby, basically created an industry.
