    It’s nice that they’re getting the public involved in the HOF process, it’ll be fun to see who the top 10 become and who actually gets in this year.

    And for those that like to watch NL, they’re in for a real treat this year.

    But the public doesn’t care to see those games, so they basically say F you to the hardcore poker fan minority.

    A fun thing to do is to go thru the guide and find some of the sloppy errors they made in their factfinding.

    No Omaha, no HORSE event (due to Scotty?), no nuthin but hold-em. Ho-hum. Maybe we can talk HSP into doing a round-of-each?
