The names of the 2013 inductees to the Poker Hall of Fame are out. Balloting by poker fans created a short list of ten from which living Hall of Fame members and poker journalists picked Tom McEvoy and Scotty Nguyen. The ceremonies will take place on November 3. It is not easy to become a member of this elite poker club. Both Nguyen and McEvoy had been nominated four times before and were elected only the fifth time. McEvoy was the winner of the 1983 World Series of Poker Championship Event. He was the first poker player ever to win the event after gaining entry through a satellite tournament. Though he has four WSOP bracelets and $2.95 million in live tournament winnings, McEnvoy has been chosen for his contribution to poker away from the tables.

While all eyes are currently locked in on the World Series of Poker Europe, we have to take a quick look at the impressive winner from the European Poker Tour Londons Main Event. Not only because it was a very impressive win, but it came along with a nice pay day against a solid field also. When all was said and done it was Robin Yliatlo who had to grind out the final day of action over an eight hour span to grab the victory and take home the first place pay day £560,980. When the action started, we saw Ylitalo sitting in third place with some work to do with 2.795 million chips. While sitting pretty, Jeff Rossiter was the player everyone had to catch with 5.205 million chips, and then Georgios Karakousis with 4.39 million chips.

Clark Kent always looked ordinary when out in public. There was no hint of any powers, no sign of his athletic build, no suspicion that if anything the glasses he wore only magnified the destructive force of that eye-beam thing he had going on. But after a short stop in a telephone booth, or a quick dash down a deserted alleyway, he got the necessary lift to turn him into a superhero.
Phil Hellmuth has a similar transformative process, although he only needs to cross the threshold of a casino or tournament room to become something magnificent.
I saw him this morning on a trip to Starbucks. He had on his full battle regalia, dressed almost entirely in black, topped off by an Aria cap. But outside – out there – he looked distinctly ordinary.
