Two of poker’s greatest players who developed their styles at a New York card club are joining a new club together — the Poker Hall of Fame.
The Poker Hall of Fame announced Tuesday that eight-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner Erik Seidel and 1995 no-limit Texas Hold ‘em main event champion Dan Harrington have been picked for the hall.
The induction ceremony will be Nov. 8 in Las Vegas before the start of the heads-up finale of poker’s richest tournament.
Seidel is considered one of the best tournament cardplayers. His runner-up finish to Johnny Chan at the 1988 series was replayed in the movie "Rounders."
Harrington has $6 million in tournament winnings, with four main event final table appearances.
