The finalists are Annie Duke, Barry Greenstein, Jennifer Harman-Traniello, Linda Johnson, John Juanda, Marcel Luske, Jack McClelland, Tom McEvoy, Scotty Nguyen, and Huck Seed.
Not a simple task, this.
The way the voting works, we are allowed to vote for as many as three of the 10 who have been nominated. We can also vote for two, one, or none. Each voter gets 10 points to distribute among the individuals for whom we wish to vote. Then all of the votes are tallied, and the top two get in (as long as each gets a certain minimum of points, I think).
I’ve written a piece over on Betfair poker that goes over the criteria and voting procedure more thoroughly. I also talk about all 10 of the nominees a bit over there.
We’ll be voting next week. I assume the winners will be announced shortly thereafter. Then later they will be honored at the Rio as part of the whole November Nine shindig.
So, let me ask here the same question I asked over at Betfair. How would you vote?
