I apologize, but I forgot three nominees to the 2012 inductee to the Video Poker Hall of Fame. This is especially unforgivable because one is our very own JB! They refer to him as vpGenius, because he used to run the site vpgenius.com. That is how I came to find him and gave him a job working for me.

So, congratulations JB! Between your old site and this one I think you have saved the public millions of dollars by teaching them to be better video poker players through your calculators, game, and WizPoker. You will definitely be getting my vote!

Why, thank you!

Actually, I was thinking earlier that JB should be nominated. Good luck JB!
I heart Crystal Math.

How about electing some of the true grinders of this sport that have made a living at this sport for years and years?


There are a group of 15-25 that have played the circuit strong since the early 90's.

Not that I begrudge success, but my vote will slant towards those who help others win.

Well, that is a silly belief on your part in my opinion.


So many deserving that have crushed the game the past 20 years, more so than the majority who write about it, they deserve and should be included. I can think of 5 or 6 that come to mind, anyone that has played the circuit the past 20 years knows these individuals, as they travel all over seeking the best plays and have made millions from the game.

This is not to say the individuals such as Bob Dancer, Dan Paymar, and a few others are not deserving.
