Only one individual is slated to be inducted into the 2020 Poker Hall of Fame, and the folks at CoolBet.com believe that one person just might be none other than Isai Scheinberg.

He is the one-time founder of PokerStars who went on the lam for a number of years following a 2011 indictment.

Coolbet has Scheinberg as a +150 favorite.  This is his first time nominated.

Some feel his innovations changed poker forever.  PokerStars has been the largest real money online poker site worldwide for the past decade.

Other nominees include

Antonio Esfandiari 3/1

Patrik Antonius 4/1

Matt Savage 6/1

Huck Seed 14/1

Mike Matusow 24/1

In order to be eligible for the Poker Hall of Fame, nominees must meet the following criteria:

A player must have played poker against acknowledged top competition

Be a minimum of 40-years-old at time of nomination

Played for high stakes

Played consistently well, gaining the respect of peers

Stood the test of time

Or, for non-players, contributed to the overall growth and success of the game of poker, with indelible
positive and lasting results
