Daniel Negreanu, Jack McClelland Inducted Into Poker Hall of Fame

Last night was a big night for the World Series of Poker. Not only did the final episodes of the 2014 Main Event air on ESPN but one of it’s brightest stars received the honor of being placed in the poker hall of fame.

Held downtown at Binion’s Horseshoe Casino, Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu and long time tournament director Jack McClelland heard their names called for the Poker Hall of Fame last night. At the ripe old age of 40, the minimum eligible age for the Hall, first-ballot inductee Negreanu is now the youngest HoF member.

According to Bluff Magazine, another Hall of Famer, 13-time WSOP bracelet winner, Phil Hellmuth took the podium to help induct McClelland while Brian Balsbaugh, Negreanu’s agent, gave Daniel’s induction speech.

Congratulations to both Daniel and Jack on their induction to the Poker Hall of Fame.
