Annually, for 40 years, the best pokerist of the world and organizers of a game have chance to get in an inner sanctum and forever to enter the name in history. The Hall of glory we recognize the new member (or members) on July 13. During a final table of the Main event of WSOP-2018 there will take place the ceremony. For now 28 nowadays well members of the Hall of glory and 18 journalists make the choice. The task faces them difficult — this year among nominees there are superstars: legendary world champion of 2003 Chris Manimeyker and famous rowdy and grumbler Mike Matusov. However, and other applicants — very solid and skilled masters who have made the name at poker tables. Still! Under the terms for applicants for hit to the Hall of poker glory not less than 40 years have to be it, they have to play successfully on high limits, get respect of the colleagues and pass test time. By the way, concerning age qualification the discussion has erupted recently. Her essence that many present young stars because of this point have practically no chances to get to the Hall of glory. However so far reforms in this plan, it seems, aren't expected. We will return to ten candidates. According to experts, the greatest chances to be among the elite this year — at 42-year-old Chris Manimeyker. The sensational winner of the Main event of WSOP-2013 has given the powerful spur to development of poker. They say that the poker era can be divided on "to Manimeyker" and "after Manimeyker". In the 2013th Chris has won the ticket for Main Event in the online satellite for $39, has played the first live tournament in career and has won, having earned $2,5 million prize-winning.

As for 50-year-old Matusov, his poker progress isn't called in question. Mike played at a final table of the Main event of WSOP twice and has earned for the career more than $9 million prize-winning. But here his manners at a table, to put it mildly, are far from exemplary. Among other nominees: Americans Haklberri Cyd ($7,6 million prize-winning for career), John Hannigan (5 bracelets of WSOP and $8 million prize-winning), David Chiu (he has also 5 champion bracelets) and the master of a game in a cache David Oppengeym.
